This has to be game over for Jennifer Brunner. ?Joining the courageous paid staff of Lee Fisher, including consultant Alan Melamed, campaign manager Geri Prado, even Lee’s own driver, and most courageous of all, Lee Fisher’s campaign consulting firm’s top partner David Plouffe – is the actual currency in Lee Fisher’s bank account. ?Every penny has endorsed Lee Fisher for US Senate.

“I’m gratified beyond words,” said Lee Fisher, standing in his campaign office surrounded by dollar bills applauding in unison. ?”I know how hard it is to put your money where your mouth is,” said […]

The incredible flood of Lee Fisher staff endorsing Lee Fisher got probably the biggest “get” of all time. ?Lee’s own driver.

“I’m not the first driver for Lee Fisher, won’t be the last, but I’m probably the first Lee Fisher driver to endorse Lee Fisher, ever”, said the driver who requested anonymity. ?”Yes, Lee is the meanest person I’ve ever met, but when I saw David Plouffe make the brave move of endorsing his own client, I simply had to follow my heart. ?Even though I get paid next to nothing.”

More to come.

All that fundraising is starting to pay off for Lee Fisher. ?Alan Melamed, who may be the highest paid member of Lee Fisher’s staff, finally got off the fence.

“This was a tough call,” said Melamed, who is currently paying for his third home in Palm Beach on Lee Fisher’s dime. ?”But the time has come. ?I bravely join David Plouffe, and Geri Prado in fully endorsing Lee Fisher. ?I’m working on the rest of the staff, but it’s a personal decision.”

Stay tuned!

“I fully endorse the signer of my paycheck,” said Prado. ?”It’s a big paycheck, and very full of money! ?Not as big as David Plouffe’s, but hey, it’s a living.”

More to come, stay tuned.

Someone over at the Fisher camp really needs to take some medication for the whole “endorsement” press release twitch. ?Anthony notices that David Plouffe, superstar of the Obama campaign, really isn’t all that much of an endorsement.

What the CNN article fails to mention is Plouffe’s consulting firm, AKPD Message and Media is one of Fisher’s consultants. So, while Plouffe certainly has star appeal, he also has obvious motives for supporting his own client. I don’t have any problem with Fisher’s campaign using him this way. What’s sad is the reporting that […]

This is really innovative and I think very effective. Humanize the campaign for supporters letting them know that real people are also working as hard as they are in volunteering. This time, Plouffe does something else new and creative. He gives some national exposure to local attacks. These things typically stay pretty targetting and under the radar. David is not content to let that happen. He wants to shine some light on them in order to blunt their effectiveness. Really good stuff:

Obama camp sees possible win without Ohio, Fla.

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Barack Obama’s campaign envisions a path to the presidency that could include Virginia, Georgia and several Rocky Mountain states, but not necessarily the pair of battlegrounds that decided the last two elections — Florida and Ohio.

In a private pitch late last week to donors and former supporters of Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe outlined several alternatives to reaching the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House that runs counter to the conventional wisdom of recent elections.
