Mark Udall for Senate
TUCSON -- US Rep. Mark Udall (D-CO2) was here yesterday talking with people and raising money for his Senate campaign.
I was there at the midtown event, and it appeared he did well.
Mark is the son of legendary former Arizona Congressman Mo Udall, and was born and raised in Tucson.
He was welcomed by Dr. Andrew Weil, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ8) and also praised by Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup (R).
Walkup also mentioned his recent 'date' with Giffords in DC where they had dinner and talked about effluent.
I appreciated the nice 'candidate' introduction I got from hostess Joan Cauthorn.
State Rep. Steve Farley (D-LD28), and Pima Supervisor candidate and Arizona Democratic Party official Donna Branch-Gilby were also there.
Udall talked about energy, water, global warming, civil liberties and other issues. He voted against the patriot act, and Bush/Cheney's Iraq war.
Udall winning a seat in the Senate is part of a critical strategy for Dems to reach 60 Senators.
Mark's cousin, Tom Udall, is running for an open Senate seat in New Mexico. The Udalls are working together in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico with a slogan, 'vote for the Udall nearest you."
I urge everyone in Colorado and New Mexico to support Udall for Senate.
