Overheard on the John Carlson Show
A Democratic operative just called me to report that on today’s John Carlson show, Republican Senator John McCain, in Seattle for a fundraiser, described the race for the 8th Congressional District between Democrat Darcy Burner and Republican Congressman Dave Reichert as “a close one to watch.”
Guess McCain hasn’t been getting all those recent press releases casting Reichert as a formidable incumbent.
UPDATE: And that fundraiser McCain’s in town for… It’s to benefit Republican Mike McGavick, who’s trying to unseat Washington’s junior senator, Maria Cantwell. You can watch McCain’s seech for the $250-a-plate McGavick fundraiser via a live webcast that begins at 7:15, here. By the way, the closer you want to get to the visiting Senator at the event, the more it will cost you: It’s $250 for the meal, but $1,000 for the VIP reception at 6, and $4,200 to have your picture taken with campaign finance reform guru McCain.
