The United Steel Workers union is publicly calling on Rep. Henry Cuellar's campaign consultants to disavow him. No stones are being left unturned here, that's for sure. Ciro Rodriguez has raised something like $270K from netroots and other sources since that "one-day story" stirred up the blogs, according to Kos, and that figure doesn't include some ads being purchased on his behalf, as the League of Conservation Voters is doing. He's also racking up endorsements from his former colleagues in Texas and elsewhere. Cuellar for his part is getting a $150K ad buy from those good progressives at the Club for Growth.
Did you hear about Frank Madla's spending habits? I'm sure this is the sort of thing that most longtime officeholders would like to keep under wraps, but still. For a person representing such a low-income district, especially with his vote on HB2292, he can take it. Larry Stallings, who says that's not how he'll operate as a Rep, sings the praises of Carlos Uresti.
More endorsements: from Abram, Fred, and Matt. There's a running tally at BOR. And lookie here, the Chron is finally in the game. Will they make it to the finish line before the buzzer sounds? We shall see.
UPDATE: Larry Stallings adds his endorsements.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 23, 2006 to Election 2006 | TrackBack
