Smilin' Norm anticipates a fundraiser with President Bush. We don't know where, we don't know when:
From Minnesota, though, came a different kind of yes, one that followed a debate along these lines, according to two strategists: Democrats plan to wrap Bush around Sen. Norm Coleman (R-Minn.) no matter what, so he might as well get something out of it.
Naturally, Coleman, who declined to say when the fundraiser would take place but said it would be in Minnesota, was more diplomatic.
"I am running against two guys who are millionaires, and one of them has access to an unlimited countrywide liberal base," Coleman said of comedian Al Franken, a Democrat.
While it's true that Franken has raised a considerable amount of money from out-of-state, Coleman's claims along these lines has been challenged. For example, Minnesota Monitor found that roughly 50% of Coleman's contributions came from Minnesotans, while Coleman reported the figure to be 70%.
