Oh for the love of Facebook! The congressional campaign of Beth Krom today received a key endorsement from State Senator Lou Correra.Â Since Senator Correa is clearly part of the more moderate side of the Democratic Party, this endorsement is certain to help Krom among independents and moderate Republicans in CD-48, a district that went for President Obama in 2008.
From Beth’s Facebook posting:
“Today I’m proud to announce my campaign has been endorsed by California Senator Lou Correa! Thank you Senator Correa, and all of you who stand behind my campaign.”
Beth has been racking up some national media of late with a recent appearance on the Thom Hartman radio program.Â Couple this with a strong fundraising quarter, and absolutely no word from the Campbell camp that they have *any* intention of debating her, Krom’s campaign is gaining pre-Labor Day momentum.
And John Campbell is still under investigation by the Office of Congressional Ethics for votes related to issues his contributors have a vested interest in, as the New York Times reported last week.Â Rep.Â Campbell is being investigated by the OCE for fundraising immediately before voting on the 2009 financial regulatory reform bill and for the circumstances surrounding the withdrawal of Rep. Mel Wattâ€™s amendment to the financial regulatory reform bill.Â Not only didÂ Campbell openly opposed the amendment for extending oversight to auto dealerships, that provide car financing, once the amendment was withdrawn Rep. Campbell praised Rep. Watt on the house floor.Â Campbell also added an amendment to the financial reform bill exempting car dealers from oversight.Â Campbell is a former car dealer himself and has received considerable funding from this industry.
