Nussle Campaign Hits Eastern Iowa Hard This Week

On Monday night Davenport played host to former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani. The Nussle campaign entertained a crowd of about 400 that night. Krusty offered an only mildly criticized review of the event, so for his report, read HERE. Or go HERE for the QC Times article. Gotta love the comments section on the news site.

Today, the Nussle campaign tours the 1st District again with Speaker Newt Gingrich. The day began with a breakfast in Dubuque, and moves on to lunch in Waterloo. I'll post some news clippings as soon as their available.

You've got to hand it to these guys...they're working hard and building a warchest of both money and GOP involvement while the Dems are still battling it out in their primary. Nussle/VP is going to be hard to beat both here in the 1st and throughout the rest of the state.

Why is Nussle still running in the First District? He's a known commodity here. Why doesn't he take these two guys and shop them around the Second and the Fourth where N/VP name ID isn't so hot?

I think he had events in those districts too (in fact I know he did), but this blog is about the 1st, so I just wrote about the stops out here. I think he's been on a barnstorming tour of the state over all. President Bush in Des Moines, McCain in Cedar Rapids, Newt everywhere, etc.

Draw your own comparison on how Newt and Nussle are alike (aside form leaving their wives while in congress that is).

I hope he keeps bringing in the well respected R's like Newt and W. His budget shambles over the past few years and personal transgressions while in Congress are only modestly dragging him down, Newt and W are increasing the sink rate much better than Nussle could on his own, he's even loosing ground to Fallon?!
