I was wondering how long it would take the Dome to get in the loop on Barack Obama's fundraiser in Chapel Hill on June 14th. I found out about it a month ago when I was asked to be a sponsor. I declined, but now I'm trying to finagle a free blogger pass. I might be able to pull that off since the host has been my business partner for the past 25 years . . . but you never know.
The Illinois senator will attend a fundraiser June 14 in Chapel Hill, near the home of the former North Carolina senator. The event is being hosted by Steve Lerner, a public relations and marketing executive who previously supported Virginia Gov. Mark Warner's presidential bid. Lerner was one of three principals in FGI Marketing Communications, which was bought by Capital Strategies in 1999.
The Dome gets a most of the historical facts wrong, but that's not surprising given that it's the Dome. They could have just called me and gotten the straight scoop.
Anyway, I'll let you know if I can sneak in. I'd really like to do a head-to-head comparison with Edwards. I've met John a couple of times and I always like what I see. But I'd like to know more about Barack Obama, too.
(Note: I was also an early Mark Warner backer and was disappointed to see him drop out.)
(Update: My criticism of the Dome on factual errors was an out-of-line exaggeration. They got it right enough. I retract my comment and have apologized to Mr. Dome.)
