NH-02: Rahm at Hodes Fundraiser

Posted by DavidNYC

I don't know any details, but I sure do like the sound of this little tidbit:

Democrat Paul Hodes said today he supports legislation that would give anyone in college or graduate school a three-thousand dollar tax credit each year.


The tax credit is sponsored by Illinois congressman Rahm Emmanuel, who is heading the Democratic Party's effort to elect more Democrats to the House of Representatives. Emmanuel also appeared at a fundraiser for Hodes in Boston last night. (Emphasis added.)

It's all about that last line. Rahm Emanuel doesn't just randomly appear at fundraisers for just anyone. He's only gonna stick his neck out for legit candidates. With any luck, this is a sign that there might be a spot for Hodes on the D-Trip's Red-to-Blue list at some point soon.

(Thanks to MissLaura for the catch.)

David, you are so right about Emanuel's surprise visit.

The spinning from the Bass camp consists of more words I heard from them in months. They got punked, IMHO.

My sources indicate that Emmanuel said that they need $2 million to beat Bass. He did not say what they would do with all that money and Emmanuel didn’t say much else.

It’s going to take more than money to beat Charlie Bass – but this was not mentioned at the luncheon.

There was little policy talk, except for Hodes talking about his tax credit proposal.

The event was poorly attended – only three of the seven tables were occupied.

Absolutely nothing was said about the 1st CD or Jim Craig – which is still a source of resentment in New Hampshire.
