Big Republican No-Shows at GOP convention

Thursday, September 04, 2008

What if they gave a party and no one came? David Wasserman, who handicaps House and Senate races says this convention may be more notable for who isn’t there than who is. More than 30 GOP Congressional candidates and incumbents will miss the convention this week, opting to campaign at home. With the Bush approval ratings in the tank, there is little fizz in the GOP champagne, and many incumbents are creating it on their own.
Guest: David Wasserman, House Editor of The Cook Political Report, a non-partisan publication, which provides analysis of the Presidential, U.S. Senate, House and gubernatorial races
