San Francisco headlines in a political battle for Missouri’s 6th congressional district, a race between Kay Barnes (D) former mayor of Kansas City, and Sam Graves (R). Graves won the seat in 2000. This is said to be the first real opportunity for the Democrats to win it back. He’s gone dirty fast – see the hysterically cheapo TV spot below. Nancy Pelosi’s PR flack deserves props – she is all over this spot. Gavin Newsom must be giving his PR flack hell right now.
More significantly the Republicans have dragged Dick Cheney out of his coma, and are charging $10,000 a plate at a fundraiser for Graves. Now, that’s Republican values!
