The Giffords campaign announces a volunteer “thank you” and ice cream social tomorrow at the campaign headquarters. Time: Noon to One. If Ice cream doesn’t get the press to cover, what will? Probably the announcement of 1st Quarter fund raising results.
On April 6th the Weiss campaign issued a press release expressing Weiss’s shock at the Bush leak of “highly classified intelligence" and supporting the Conyers resolution for a bipartisan Congressional investigation.Like most press releases it fell still-born from the press, or did I miss a story? She should have tried ice cream.
At least Weiss and Giffords send press releases to bloggers.
The Data Port is apparently not on the Latas Campaign press release list, but judging from its web site it’s doing a fine job of getting in the papers.
Big Brother is watching us.(Watch him back.) Three days a ago the NRCC (The National Republican Congressional Committee) fired off a press release reporting that it was shocked…shocked…that Weiss, Giffords and Latas hadn’t immediately reported on how they would have voted on ten crucial issues:
Death Tax Repeal (RCV#102) 4/13/05
Flag Burning Prohibition (RCV#296) 6/22/05
Medical Liability (RCV#449) 7/28/05
Lawsuit Abuse Reduction (RCV#553) 10/27/05
Tax Relief Extension (RCV#621) 12/08/05
Victory in Iraq Resolution (RCV#648) 12/16/05
Defense Appropriations (RCV#665) 12/19/05
Real ID Act (RCV#31) 2/10/05
Patriot Act (RCV#627) 12/14/05
Border Security (RCV#661) 12/16/05
The NRCC is already fighting the November election. Incidentally, I don’t think the press release got any press. Maybe they should have offered ice cream?
