ND Democrat Getting Training From Obama Administration Maoist
One of the biggest liabilities for Democrats this election cycle, particularly in “red states” like North Dakota, will be the presence of Barack Obama at the top of the ticket. Already Democrats have been distancing themselves from the President and his far-left policies, and you can expect the trend to continue through election day.
Case in point, I don’t expect North Dakota Democrat House candidate Pam Gulleson to spend a lot of time talking about President Obama on the campaign trail. But that’s not stopping her from going to Washington DC to get training from one of the President’s most controversial advisers.
Washington on Wednesday for a day of training and meeting with top Democratic officials as they prepare their candidates for next year’s election cycle in their hopes of taking back the House.
The 107 candidates from 36 different states are part of the DCCC’s diverse recruiting class that DCCC Chairman Steve Israel and DCCC Recruiting Chairwoman Allyson Schwartz have helped assemble. The class includes farmers, businessmen and women, former mayors, veterans and even a former astronaut.
Among the candidates expected are former Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack, running the 4th District against Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa; Army veteran Brendan Mullen, running for the open Indiana 2nd District seat against 2010 GOP nominee Jackie Walorski, whom he outraised last quarter; former astronaut Jose Hernandez, who just announced against freshman Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., in the new 10th District; businessman Jamie Wall, who’s challenging freshman Rep. Reid Ribble, R-Wis., in the 8th District; former state Rep. Pam Gulleson, running for North Dakota’s open at-large seat; physician Raul Ruiz, running against Rep. Mary Bono Mack, R-Calif., in the new 36th District; former Orlando Police Chief Val Demings, running against freshman Rep. Daniel Webster, R-Fla., in the 8th District; and former U.S. Attorney Rob Wallace, running in Oklahoma’s open 2nd District seat to succeed retiring Rep. Dan Boren, D-Okla. …
On the candidates’ agenda: a reception for the DCCC’s Women LEAD program, policy discussions on economics and national security, media training with former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, and a presentation by both Israel and Schwartz.
Anita Dunn, of course, is the self-professed Maoist who was the originator of the Obama administration’s ill-advised war on Fox News.
From this polarizing figure, Gulleson will be receiving media training. So are radical leftist views, combined with a thuggish treatment of the media, what we can expect from Gulleson?
Certainly she’d no doubt rather have this “training” with the Obama team kept quiet.Tags: election 2012, North Dakota News, pam gulleson
