I posted about this yesterday – but it came out in the afternoon, after most people have read my blog for the day.
So I’ll try this again: I would like to ask you a favor. Get out on Twitter and “Follow” Tony Hernandez’ Twitter account.
Tony’s running for Congress in Minnesota’s Fourth CD – my district, the district of Betty McCollum, who has been taking up space in the US House for a long, long time.
Conventional wisdom says the race can’t be won – that the 4th is just tooooo Democrat.
It’s not true, of course; it can be won. Redistricting shaved down the DFL advantage from 70-30 to maybe 60-40.
And the Dems’ ugly secret – Betty McCollum isn’t even that popular among DFLers. Her vote totals just keep dropping. Oh, she raises all sorts of outside money – but her “passion index”, even in 2008., was pretty low.
I live in CD4, and I’m not going to lie – I’m ready for it to take ten years to make the GOP in CD4 a viable party.
But with a little help, we juuuuust might be able to jump-start things a bit.
