Obama Heads To CO To Raise Money For Appointed Senator Bennet. Time To Raise Money For GOP CO Senate Candidate Jane Norton
The president is rushing to the aid of imperiled Democratic appointee to the Senate, the nearly invisible Michael Bennet, Bennet has been a reliable vote for Obama and Reid on Obamacare, the stimulus and every other hard-left lurch by the Administration, and this is his payback.
Former CO Lt. Governor Jane Norton is the front runner in the hunt to face Bennet in November. It is a great day to send a contribution her way. The president is doing a $25 a head fundraiser for Bennet, so that’s a good number, which can be contributed online. Obama is also doing a $1,000 a plate dinner, and if you can swing that, great.
Energy among the conservatives is a necessary precondition to winning in November, but so are campaign contributions to match the special interest dollars the president will raise to keep his hopes of Obamacare and cap-and-tax alive.
Dexter Filkins reports on the capture of more senior Taliban commanders. The interrogation of Taliban top commander Abdul Ghani Baradar has led to a great trove of intelligence. (Which is why the underpants bomber Abdulmuttallab ought to have been interrogated and not Mirandized after his capture.)
In my interview with him from Kandahar yesterday, Michael Yon praised SoldiersAngels as very much still in support of our troops, and support of SA is a great way to demonstrate that these troops in Afghanistan are still very much front of mind on the homefront.
