House Candidates Back on the Program

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- After having their originally-scheduled appearances bumped off the Republican National Convention program Monday in the wake of Hurricane Gustav, a small slate of GOP House candidates has been slotted to appear early in the program tonight.

The lineup is slightly different than the one that was supposed to be trotted out Monday night. The five candidates on tap this evening are Erik Paulsen (Minnesota's 3rd district), Jay Love (Alabama's 2nd district), Charlie Summers (Maine's 1st district), Aaron Schock (Illinois' 18th district) and David Cappiello (Connecticut's 5th district).

The candidates will speak between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m CT, and will be bracketed by the two GOP campaign chiefs: National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Cole (Okla.) and National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Ensign (Nev.). Most of the party's top House challengers seem to have skipped the convention, just as many Democratic hopefuls didn't go to Denver last week.

Comments

The Anchorage Daily News ran an interesting article on September 4th about Sarah Palin that I think all voters should read because it gives you a VERY good clue as to who she is. When Sarah Palin was elected mayor of Wasilla., the city librarian was asked to remove certain books from the library. When she refused, she received a letter that she would be fired.
It is disturbing that a person who chooses to ban reading material approved by the National Library Assoc., in promoting her religious views is being considered as VP of USA.
We can not allow this to happen.
