Bumped - Bouldin.
In NY-13, Vito Fossella's district, a competitive Democratic primary is in the works.
On one side, you have a candidate named Mike McMahon. Who is Mike McMahon?
"He’s not as conservative as Powers, but he definitely appeals to us on some of the issues. He appeals to us on his opposition to gay marriage, and he told us he continues to support U.S. action in Iraq." - Conservative Party Chair Jerry Kasser
On the other side, we have Steve Harrison, a co-author of "The Responsible Plan to End the War in Iraq.".
Guess which one the DCCC endorsed?
Once again, the DCCC has stuck its hands in a primary, supporting the Bush Democrat before the people even had a chance to decide for themselves what they wanted.
We, the people, must stand behind the progressive Democrat who is for HR 676, safe renewable energy, and for the withdrawal of our troops from Iraq. read more »
Steve Harrison will hold an online Town Hall meeting at 8 pm tonight.

Huffington Post blogger Howie Klein in his other blog, "Down with Tyranny", says the DCCC is spreading false rumors that NY 13th Congressional District Democratic candidate Steve Harrison is dropping out of the primary against Councilman Michael McMahon. The winner faces Republican Frank Powers for the right to replace Vito Fossella. Against Fossella in 2006, Harrison received a higher percentage of the vote than any Democrat ever under the district's current configuration.

Yesterday was the first day of the petition season to get my name on the ballot for NY-13 and our dozens of volunteers, all determined to Get America Working Again, knocked on hundreds of doors and spoke to their neighbors and friends about our message of hope and determination.
I'm a progressive Democrat who believes in a strong economy, the safe withdrawal of our troops from Iraq, healthcare for all, and lower gas prices.
I'm a progressive Democrat who believes in human rights, civil rights, and women's rights.
I'm a progressive Democrat who has received the endorsements of national and local organizations, including the Democratic Organization of Richmond County and the Staten Island Democratic Association. I have also received the endorsement of Daily Gotham. read more »
