Is Ford Bell against funding our troops?

That is the question that has been on my mind ever since I saw the following statement issued by the Kennedy campaign.

##
"I congratulate Ford Bell for his honesty. Finally, a Democrat Senate candidate levels with Minnesotans about where he stands on a key issue. However, Mr. Bell demonstrates that he is on the extreme left of American politics. 308 members of Congress, including more than half of House Democrats (106), among them Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Colin Peterson, stepped up and voted to fund our troops.

"Mr. Bell would have voted against defense funding for body armor, Humvees
and technology to counter improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Bell would have also voted against funding for Avian Flu preparedness, disaster relief for victims of Hurricane Katrina, and additional funds for low-income families to help heat their homes this winter.

"I hope that soon Amy Klobuchar and Patty Wetterling will be as straight
forward with Minnesotans as Ford Bell and tell us whether or not they agree with him." (Source: Mark Kennedy '06 Press Release, Dec. 21, 2005)

Ford Bell is way too out of touch on this, as is the DFL.

When the DFL attacked Kennedy on this, they also attacked their own, including Rep. Colin Peterson.

Maybe Wetterling has competition after all in the race to the left.

One might say that when Kennedy attacked the DFL on this, he also attacked one of his own (Ramstad).
