Indiana Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate coming to Tampa by Mitch E.Perry04/13/06
Democratic Indiana Senator and likely presidential candidate Evan Bayh is coming to Tampa for a $500-per-person fundraiser at the Tampa Club.
Bayh is a member of the centrist leaning Democratic Leadership Conference or DLC, the same mainstream organization that Bill Clinton and Al Gore came fromâ€¦.
Democratic Party consultant and former Tampa City Councilman Bob Buckhorn is also a member of the DLCâ€¦..Heâ€™s hosting Bayhâ€™s visit next week (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?beyond thatâ€?)
So far there are no declared candidates for Presidentâ€¦But Senators Hilary Clinton and Joe Biden have all but done soâ€¦â€¦Both candidates on the â€™04 ticket, John Kerry and John Edwards, are also considered to strongly be considering a run, as is former general Wesley Clarkâ€¦.
WMNF asked political consultant Bob Buckhorn, how can Evan Bayh, not known to have loads of charisma, break on through and became well enough known in the next 2 years? (roll tape#2 o.q.â€? is even better than thanâ€?)
The fundraiser for Evan Bayh takes place next Friday, april 21st, at the Tampa Club in downtown Tampa.
