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 fromÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
Democratic Party consultant and former Tampa City Councilman Bob Buckhorn is also a member of the DLCÃ¢â‚¬Â¦..HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hosting BayhÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s visit next week (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?beyond thatÃ¢â‚¬?)
So far there are no declared candidates for PresidentÃ¢â‚¬Â¦But Senators Hilary Clinton and Joe Biden have all but done soÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Both candidates on the Ã¢â‚¬â„¢04 ticket, John Kerry and John Edwards, are also considered to strongly be considering a run, as is former general Wesley ClarkÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
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.Ã¢â‚¬? is even better than thanÃ¢â‚¬?)
The fundraiser for Evan Bayh takes place next Friday, april 21st, at the Tampa Club in downtown Tampa.
