Essential Estrogen: Christian Fong plans closed door gubernatorial tour
Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen
Christian Fong, who I believe is the youngest of the Republican
hopefuls set for a 2010 gubernatorial primary, issued a press release
about an upcoming 17-city tour. While that in and of itself is typical
campaign fare, a note at the bottom of the announcement was unusual.
Fong will be making himself available to members of the press prior to
each event, but will not be allowing press to attend the actual
events. ... If there is one thing residents of Iowa (and New
Hampshire) are well versed in doing it is attending campaign events,
cutting through the noise and developing an opinion based on the
policy expressed. For the record, we are also not so dense as to
believe that with cameras and tape recorders whirling in the
background that what we say is private.
