    Anyone know where the McCain event is being held?

  2. Brad Jenkins says:

    Never mind.

  3. finnegan says:

    The WaPo didn’t have the details. WSLS did, so I updated the post with more details.

  4. Brad Jenkins says:

    Thanks for clarifying. I posted that comment, and then the details were there. Threw me for a loop there for a minute.

  5. Renee says:

    Wow, pretty neat – I didn’t know Clark was supporting Obama.

  6. finnegan says:

    Possibly vying for a Sec. of Defense position?

  7. bill says:

    Has anyone seen any polling data on the Goodlatte, Rasoul and Allen congressional race.

  8. Breslau says:

    Renee: Really, you don’t remember the big stink back in June?


    However, if you support Rasoul, it won’t be pretty to view.

  9. Breslau says:

    Wait, sorry, Bill. I thought that site had poll numbers when I last peeked at it. An August 15 article from the News Virginian had Goodlatte with 59 percent and Rasoul with 30 percent. That’s the most recent I can find. A lot can change in two months, but judging by the fundraising data on cqpolitics, I’d say it’s pretty safe to say that Rasoul it going to get creamed.

  10. bill says:

    Thank you Breslau. I have a feeling you’re correct on outcomes. We were looking for data to present to government classes. The funding information is just as valuable.
