Vito Fossella's campaign shows more signs of vulnerability

Following the announcement that Fossella's own party thinks he is vulnerable and will throw money at his race comes this news;

Dick Cheney will be a featured guest at an April 21 fund-raising lunch for Vito Fossella, the city’s only Republican congressman, a sign that the national Republican Party is putting in a major effort to hold onto the seat.

If you didn't think Fossella was scared or at the very least taking his re-election very serious given the challengers he is facing, he is bringing Dick Cheney in for a fund raiser. Dick Cheney has an approval rating around 22%, worse than the President who many Republicans will not campaign with in their districts. Now Fossella will continue to tell people he is an "independent" as a way to create separation between himself and the President but that description is now moot given he is stooping to bring someone nearly 4/5 of the country despises in to help shore up his failing fund raising efforts. Fossella is not bringing Cheney to town for fun, Fossella is vulnerable.

update: This isn't the first time Dick Cheney has helped Vito Fossella

I am neutral in this primary so far and I don't delve much blog-wise into state and city races other than promoting a Democratic candidate or looking at the depth of our bench. I will say I am a fan of Janele. She was very receptive to my blogging early on. What issues are you interested in?
