While Lunching With Roy

And Lucas Case, Karl shows us what he really thinks about #SGF and the 7th District. With a "get in the door" price of $500, a photo op price of a thousand bucks and a private roundtable chat with Karl for $2400 -- Roy's Other Friend Jack didn't make the party, he was too busy flipping pizzas!

Billy Long And Others Want To Take Away This Black Guy's Right To Vote!

This morning's SNL has an article about a forum held yesterday for the 7th District candidates seeking to replace Roy Blunt.

Part of the discussion focused on the repeal of the 17th Amendement, which was ratified in 1913 and allows for the direct election of U.S. Senators. Previous to ratification, state legislators chose the senators.

Cory De Vera reports:

Candidate Darrell Moore, currently Greene County prosecuting attorney, stood out as the only candidate against repeal of the 17th Amendment.

Ratified in 1913, the amendment allows voters to directly elect U.S. senators. Before its passage, senators were selected by state legislators.

Those who want it repealed (Goodman, Long, Moon, Nodler, Wardell and Wisdom) argue that repeal would return power to states. Candidate Mike Moon said when the 17th Amendment was enacted, supporters were looking for a way to counter corruption that had developed in the way some senators got their seats.

But taking that power away from state legislatures and giving it directly to the people may not be such a good idea today, he said. "The state has lost its voice to Washington, D.C.," Moon said.

These guys, with the notable exception of Darrell Moore, have been listening to Glenn Beck too much.

Turdblossom Coming To Queen City to Taunt His Values And The Stellar Roy Blunt

This just in from former KY3 political reporter David Catanese

Former presidential adviser Karl Rove will hold a fundraiser for Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) on Monday in a final push before the second quarter fundraising deadline.

Rove is slated to host two events for the seven-term congressman: a breakfast in St. Charles and a luncheon in Springfield, the Blunt campaign confirmed to POLITICO.

Donors who buck up the maximum $2,400 contribution get a private roundtable with President Bush’s top political adviser, while supporters donating $1,000 will receive a photo opportunity with Rove. The event alone is $500 a head.

Rove was an early backer of Blunt, endorsing him in a December Wall Street Journal column where he lauded the GOP’s “stellar” class of 2010 Senate candidates.

This is a really hush, hush event. Apparently even many local Republicans who are usually in the know don't know where the lunch is being held and at exactly what time. Rove's strategy is for all Republican candidates to avoid the press completely this election cycle. It will all be ads. Money, money, money.
