Apparently, Al Wynn was up against Clinton surrogate Sheila Jackson-Lee on Geraldo last night as an Obama surrogate. He's hanging his whole campaign on the Obama surge in turnout, which is projecting to just swamp Maryland and the district. Apparently at least one CBC member was out stumping in churches this morning, though I don't have confirmation of that yet (but I will soon). It's not surprising, considering who is giving him money from among the CBC membership.
I can't figure out the corporate blog swarm for Wynn over the last four days of $150K + in PAC money. It's almost too late to spend that kind of money effectively. Almost. I imagine that Steny Hoyer turned on the cash spigot in the past week, realizing that Wynn just isn't getting it done on his own.
The Obama campaign has wisely kept its distance from Wynn, sending out a press release upon the endorsement of every elected official except Wynn. The campaign should be wary, though, because Wynn will use any opportunity he can to act as a surrogate and pretend that he is endorsed by Obama. And I'll just note that this is a tie that the Obama people should not want.
Fox News and Geraldo is one thing, but it should not become a trend.
UPDATE: I got a call from Sam Grahan Felson, Wynn was freelancing here.
