commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Sen Gillibrand trys the money angle on Harold Ford Jr…….

The New York Times does a piece this morning pointing out that Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has $7 million on hand for the fall race and she could be expect to double that figure by later this year…..And those facts are enough…Hernandez does admit that Gillibrand’s people ARE WORRIED…….

But as I have posted here that may not be enough this time……Harold Ford Jr has been around the block….He has been part of the national democratic apparatus for the last few years…..And he is smart…..And he is black…..Don’t forget any of the things I just mentioned….

Kirsten Gillibrand has still not caught on in downstate New York……

If Ford runs…. He will pick up the New York City minority vote in an instant…and the rest of the city will follow……that makes him the leader in this by a hair……after that….. Lets see what happens…..

No matter how much the senator’s people give to the New York Times….the democratic senator still loses in polling to ANY named Republican that would run for the seat that she was GIVEN…not elected to……

I’ll say it again…The Dog hopes Harold Ford, Jr. runs….And sends Kirsten back upstate……..

  1. The white ethnic vote is the big one Italian and Irish. Ford will win big with Hispanics, Jews and African americans. Will Rev AL come out for ford? This would really drive up black turnout.

  2. Al Sharpton endorsed Gillibrand last summer. Even for him it would be difficult to justify changing his endorsement simply because an African American entered the race.
