Other Warner News

The New Hampshire Union Leader reports Virginia Governor Mark Warner will be the speaker at the state party’s biggest annual event. The “100 Club” dinner will be held on February 10th. See link:

This early in the cycle, presidential polls are based largely on name recognition and not what candidate the big money or serious organizers are rallying behind. However, they are however a good gauge for finding out whether lesser-known candidates are starting to break through in name recognition.

A new CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll for the Democratic nomination shows:
Clinton - 43%
Kerry - 14%
Edwards - 14%
Biden - 8%
Warner - 3%
Richardson - 3%
Bayh - 1%
Vilsack - 1%

Because Warner is moving up the name recognition polls ever so slowly, I am hoping my early fears that he was peaking too early misplaced.

Still I also found this poll interesting in that Sen. Russ Feingold did not even register. He is my bet to be the darling of the left.
