CD 8: The Mother's Milk of Politics

The cash-strapped Latas campaign is moving in the direction of much needed major fundraising, sponsoring an area visit by former Senator Max Cleland. If you’ve never heard Cleland, but have always wanted to, this is your chance.

As of this post there was no mention of this on the Latas website. Why keep it secret, guys? Maybe they thought that only hard core Latas supporters would be interested, but those supporters haven’t been particularly open-handed.

At any rate, if you’re interested here’s where and how much.
RSVP: (520) 207-0455

Sunday, May 21, 6:00-8:00 PM, $50, buffet dinner at Windemere Hotel in Sierra Vista (preferred seating with Max or Jeff, $100) Cash bar at 5:30 with Max and Jeff.

Monday, May 22, 9:00-11 Am, $35, breakfast at Quail Creek Country Club Green Valley (preferred seating with Max or Jeff, $75.)

Monday, May 22, 7:00-9:00 PM, $100, dinner at Sheraton Hotel on Grant Road in Tucson (preferred seating with Max or Jeff $500) Private reception 6:00-7:00 pm $250 (includes dinner.)

Art made a decent point about helping out Yellow Dog Democrats that you don't necessarily like.

I for one am getting signatures for candidates that I have not cared for, nor liked in their votes and awful special interest sellouts.

I'm happy that the field isn't limited to the old school Ds anymore.

I like the way Art is posting the press releases that the newspapers toss.

He is doing us all a service that the newspapers once did for free.

Now you have to pay to play for the TV and news buys.

Thanks for the press, Art.

I saw a post elsewhere (made by vetdem I think), in which he indicated he had heard Cleland had canceled on making a benefit appearance for Latas.

Has anyone else heard about this? If true, it could be a back-breaker for the Lata campaign.

The announcement of Senator Cleland's appearances is still up on the Latas web site, so I presume the rumor is just that.

Speaking as a Giffords supporter I must say I'm glad to hear that the events are still on. Everyone benefits from a vigorous primary campaign.

It may worth the money to any Democrat to attend, just to hear Cleland.
