Earning his way

Senator Bill Frist, M.D. is coming to Iowa this weekend to campaign and raise money for a number of Iowa Republicans. On Friday, Frist will be in Spencer campaigning with Jim Nussle, and later fundraise for Linda Upmeyer. Saturday, Frist will head to Eastern Iowa to aid Matt Reisetter and Mike Whalen's campaigns.

Reisetter is one of the R's top 2 pick-up opportunities in the Iowa House, but the real fun will come at the campaign event for Mike Whalen.

As we reported here first, Mike Whalen's recently dispatched opponent Brian Kennedy is leading up Frist's Iowa efforts. Thanks to a few readers writing to the tipjar and some conversation around the Cooler, we have heard that Kennedy's old campaign manager Carol Earnhardt will be VOLPACing as well. Carol is a long-time Republican activist from Davenport, who in addition to running Kennedy's campaign, was the Political Director for Doug Gross Gubernatorial bid, LMF Director, amongst many many other efforts. And a few tipjar writers mentioned that there is no love lost between Carol and Mike. So it should be a lot of fun in Eastern Iowa this weekend!

Frist also has Governor Branstad's younger son Marcus on board, So it's a four stop weekend and the new Frist teams' first go. We'll be keeping an ear out over the weekend.

Let's try and keep it relatively clean today boys and girls.

Doug Shull: He's outraised Mark Davitt by leaps and bounds (we don't have the numbers in front of us, but think Shull is at or near 100K) and Mark has never had a real important. Doug is definately the House's best pick-up opportunity.

We're Shull Shills.
