As I reported last night on the Postcards blog, Democratic sources say President Barack Obama will be in Austin and Houston on Aug. 9 for a pair of fundraisers. And Democratic gubernatorial nominee Bill White doesn’t plan to be there.Nothing but the best for those rich Democrats. Considering how radioactive Obama is they should hold these events in fallout shelters.
Said White spokeswoman Katy Bacon, “That week is jam packed, and he’s not scheduled to be in Houston or Austin at all except for the night of the 12th. In August, Bill will be talking with Texans about the future of our state, laying out his plans for the same.”
The president’s approval numbers aren’t good in Texas, and Gov. Rick Perry has repeatedly sought to link Obama and White.
The Austin event will raise money for the Democratic National Committee and the Houston event for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. An e-mail that’s circulating about the Austin fundraiser says it will be held at the Four Seasons.
