Bayh Stumps for Braley with Gluba by his Side

Democrat 1st District nominee Bruce Braley was the benficiary of a Davenport stop by '08 hopeful Sen. Evan Bayh Friday night.

From the QC Times:

“We have to stand on Democratic principles and stand on our values,” he said. “We’ve got to reach out to our fellow citizens to move forward. By appealing to the better instincts of the American people, by asking people to make the tough decisions to do more now, we can make a stronger America, a more decent and more just America,” to pass on to future generations.

“We’re all in this together,” Bayh said.

Aside from Bayh stumping for Braley, Braley's primary rival Bill Gluba (who carried Scott County and was once weighing a post-primary run at the seat as an Independent) has been seen by Braley's side a lot lately. In a show of great party unity, Gluba has been spotted driving the Braley entry in the Bettendorf 4th of July parade, was at this rally wearing a Braley sticker proudly, and was even reported in this article as to have been driving Braley around the district a lot lately. This is good for Gluba, and great for Braley, who realizes he has to shore up support in vote-heavy Scott County to carry this district in November.

Braley must be paying off Gluba's campaign debts.

We'll know on July 15th. However, I doubt it. Braley won and Gluba came in third. It's not like Whalen is paying off Kennedy and Dix's campaign debts....not that he couldn't afford it even while funding his own run.

I guess Braley didn't pay off Gluba's debt - and he has more money than Whalen (if you count the outstanding debt of each campaign). With Rove/Cheney/McCain up to bat for Whalen you'd think he could raise some dough. Guess the NRCC will have to bail him out - or bail on this race. I wonder when the first polls will be coming out.
