Sen. Franken to stump for Del. Senate nominee Coons



By Jordan Fabian - 10/04/10 03:53 PM ET

Delaware Democratic Senate nominee Chris Coons is seeking to boost his campaign this week with an appearance by a liberal Democratic senator.

Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), a former comedian and liberal talk radio host, will stump for Coons on Thursday, according to the Delaware Democratic Party.

The New Castle County executive faces GOP nominee Christine O'Donnell, who is backed by Tea Party groups, in the general election. Most polls show Coons leading O'Donnell by double-digits.

Republicans viewed the race for Vice President Joe Biden's old seat as a prime pick-up opportunity after Biden's son, state attorney general Beau Biden, decided not to enter the race. But O'Donnell's primary win over nine-term centrist Rep. Mike Castle (R) has appeared to hand momentum back to the Democrats.

But Franken's appearance signals that Democrats are not taking the race for granted. The Minnesota senator spent much of his first year keeping a low-profile following his narrow victory that was decided in a recount over former Sen. Norm Coleman (R) in 2008, but has since expanded his public political profile.

Last month, Coons distanced himself from remarks by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), who faces a tough reelection battle. Reid called Coons his "pet," in an interview with The Hill, explaining that the Delawarean is his favorite candidate.

"I've met Senator Reid at least twice," Coons later told the Huffington Post. "When I first jumped into this race to the U.S. Senate, he and I had a very good, long conversation, and he has regularly called to check in and encourage me, and I'm grateful for his encouragement. But I'm running my own race for the people of Delaware, and I'm running to be an independent voice that will fight for Delaware's families and Delaware's concerns."

Cheating worked well for me. It can work well for Coons.

Franken will be so abusive with his ugly foul mouth that he will end up helping Christine O'Donnell.

Let’s hope so, because if the election were today, Coons would win by a large margin.

I would like to know the answer to that also. Is she just sitting on that 2.5 M money bomb? Is she running radio ads? Has she done any TV ads? There should be youtube videos of the TV ads if she has.

If handled correctly by the Republicans this is an opportunity. Just get all the goofy statements by Franken and place them side by side with Coons goofy statements. Hit the birds of a feather flock together aspect of Frankens appearance.

I see Coons ads all day long, ain’t seen one for Christine. I read that she has met/ will meet with all Republican candidates running for office in Delaware and has provided some of that money bomb money to them.

It certainly could! Coons supposedly is leading in the polls anywhere from 9 to 16 points and he does this? He brings in a pathetic, disgusting clown who stole a statewide election in Minnesota. It's absolutely hilarious!

Here's hoping Christine gets a ten point bump from this nutty stunt! LOL!!!

I’ve seen zillions of ads for Christine O’Donnell. Went to a show of World War II planes and antique cars at Georgetown, Delaware airport Saturday and there were O’Donnell signs everywhere. No Coons signs at all. Absolutely none. Zero!

Are these national ads or local Delaware ads? Has anyone from Delaware seen any ads for Christine?

Any mention of Franken needs the accompanying photo of the “esteemed” senator in his diaper.....

Well that does not sound good. Not using all that money that was sent in to her campaign by people from all over the US just so she would have enough to counter Coones and the Dem lie machine is not good!

When diaper bunny appears play....
OLD ZIP COON
There was once a man with a double chin,
Who performed his skill on a violin,
Oh he played in time and he played in tune,
But he never played anything but OLD ZIP COON.
OLD ZIP COON he played all day,
Till he drove his friends away,
He played all night by the light of the moon,
But he never played anything but OLD ZIP COON.

I guess Coons is really going out of his way to lock up the masturbator demographic.

I would expect the ‘blitz’ to occur the last few weeks, which is when most people who are undecided make up their mind.
