Rep. Allen West is Coming to Syracuse!

Congressman Allen West (R-FL) is coming to the Syracuse, NY area for a campaign fundraiser with Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle. According to the Buerkle campaign, the event will be at the Double Tree Hotel in East Syracuse on Monday, August 6. The event will take place in the evening, but the exact time has not yet been determined. If you plan to attend you should respond to the Buerkle campaign.

The race between Rep. Buerkle and former Rep. Dan Maffei is getting a lot of national attention and Speaker of the House John Boehner will be in town on August 4 for a separate fundraiser. Buerkle’s campaign set an all time record for fundraising in the last quarter, but Maffei still has more cash on hand. Oh, and did I mention that I talked to some of his neighbors a few months ago? They said he’s hardly ever at his “home” in Dewitt and only comes back when it’s time to campaign. He also had a picture of Rahm Emanuel in his closet when he was in Congress. How creepy.
