White House Pressures '08 Hopefuls on Miers

The White House is trying its best to get Republican senators considering a run for the presidency in 2008 to go on the record in support of Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers.  Seems the goal is to put the heat on those presidential hopefuls when they travel to the key primary state of New Hampshire.

New Hampshire Union Leader political writer John Di Staso unearthed a nugget about a a group of activists who approached Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) during his visit to St. Anselm College Tuesday night.  The group carried a letter detailing Miers's qualifications for the court. Brownback has been the most outspoken of the would-be 2008 GOPers about his concerns regarding the Miers nomination. The effort, apparently, was stage-managed by the White House political arm.

DiStaso's nugget is the second item in his "Granite Status" file.
