Rowley campaign still in shambles

It’s been two weeks and the image of Rowley stumping in Rochester still occupies her homepage.


In other Rowley related news, I’ve heard from a reliable source, familiar with 2nd District DFL politics, that the campaign is still in shambles. The staff, with the exception of the finance area, is her immediate family, with her husband doing the campaign scheduling. My source informed me that Mr. Rowley is so inexperienced, and Mrs. Rowley so eager for a speaking engagement, that she will show up to any event she is invited to.

Why don't you just quit picking on Rowley. If Bush would have listened to her instead of planning invasions, 9-11 would never have occured!

If she was really convinced, she would have taken action right away, not waiting until AFTER 9/11 to take her case to the press. I'm not saying she's a horrible individual. I'm just trying to bring attention to the fact that the DFL and DNC are exploiting her like Patty Wetterling.

It has gone too far when the right wing uses ad hominem attacks against someone like Rowley. Sick and tired of these attack slobs.

Eli, I'm sorry you don't find reason in my argument. The fact is that Rowley has little, if any, support, nor does she even campaign in the right district. Because of this she will be lucky to make it past the DFL primary.

I'm sorry you are sick of it, but the DFL and IP parties are just as guility. How hypocritical to attack just "right wingers" and not the others.

There's nothing wrong with campaigning out of your district. It isn't that she's stupid, there are a lot of good reasons to drum up support and to help raise money. You think that Kennedy will never go to a fundraiser out of the state? I expect Amy Klobuchar will too.

Rowley is actually pretty moderate, even next to Kline who is very much right-wing. Daly won't run again because she got stomped in 2004. I would put Rowley's chances at pretty good for getting into a tight race with Kline and maybe even winning.

I would put Rowley's chances at exactly zero. I'm sorry to say this, but people that look like that don't win political office. Bash me for saying that if you want, but it is true. And what's with that slogan? Always try? Is that supposed to inspire me? That would be like saying "Time to hit the snooze button" instead of "It's morning again in America."

If this is the best the DFL has to offer...

Rowley is against the Patriot Act. Being weak on fighting terrorism sin't going to help you in the 2nd District.

As for Rowley's looks, I think you're wrong, this is the district that elected Mark Kennedy. *Shudders*

I'm willing to bet that RM's over-simplification of her position on the USA PATRIOT act will not be what the 2nd CD voters come away with. She obviously opposes certain provisions in the Patriot act. I think her terrorism credentials are the best one could hope for in a Congressional race. Hell, she was Time's person of the year.

It's not that I'm oversimplifying her postion on the Patriot Act, but her postion is so complex, full of nuances and back pedeling, that it's just too hard to out right explain it.

How are we suppose to know where she stands? She won't take a position on damn near anything.

Remember that she put off campaigning for a year so she could get the retirement package from an organization she continually trashes.
