New Yorkers Skipping DNC, but Jeff Bridges Isn't
The New York Times is reporting that plenty of Democratic members of Congress in New York state are skipping the DNC to stay home and campaign.
"Jeffrey M. Stonecash, a professor of political science at Syracuse University, said some Democrats in upstate districts that have a history of electing Republicans “don’t want anything to do with Obama” as November approaches."
But that's cool. Because the O is reporting that Jeff Bridges and Mo Rocca will be in town for the Impact Film Fest, held the week of the DNC, and that L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is inviting Eva Longoria and the B-52s to his party.
