A group of Republican Senators have sent a letter to their colleagues urging them to support Minnesota's GOP Senator Norm Coleman for the chair of their Senatorial Committee, an important leadership post:
A group of Republican senators wrote to colleagues Friday urging them to support Sen. Norm Coleman in his bid to become chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
The letter, obtained by The Associated Press, cites Coleman's fund-raising and political abilities as reasons he should be chairman. Republican senators will vote Nov. 17 to choose either Coleman, R-Minn., or Sen. Elizabeth Dole, R-N.C. ...
The letter was signed by seven senators: former Majority Leader Trent Lott of Mississippi, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Mike DeWine of Ohio, Larry Craig of Idaho, Jim Talent of Missouri and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia.
Coleman gets their support because of his fundraising ability as well as his leadership and demonstrated expertise on winning elections in tough markets. Norm has navigated his way through the rocky, populist shoals of Minnesota to become one of the most popular politicians I've ever seen. Having seen Sen. Coleman up close, I can tell you that he is quite impressive; he connects personally with everyone and has a memory that has to approach photographic. He's easily one of the most likable people I've met yet in politics.
He's running against Elizabeth Dole, a very likable and valuable member of the Republican contingent. Fortunately for the GOP, they have an embarassment of riches, and a tough choice to make.Sphere It View blog reactions
