If you have three gay men (one in costume) bypassing the biggest celebration in West Hollywood to join phone bank for Meg Whitman and Carly Fiorina on Hallowe’en, something is gong on among Republicans. While Republicans across the country are enthusiastic about our candidates, Democrats in California are scrambling for volunteers. One career politician even resorted to begging school children to help out.
And now comes word that the day before the mid-terms, Vice President Joe Biden will be “visiting Vermont“, a state Obama won just two years ago with more than two-thirds of the vote.
Ace, who alerted me to the visit, notes that his cobloggers are “are wondering, well, is Vermont in play?”
At the close of the campaign, the party in power does tend to send the president and vice president to states with tight races where their visits can swing a few last-minute votes.
