Walberg Lenawee Kickoff Disappointing?

A short post now, then I've got a much more important post coming up next.

Today, Congressman Walberg held his Lenawee County Campaign Kickoff:


Friday, August 22, 2008

Join us at Next Diesel
1571 W. Beecher Rd.
Adrian, MI 49221

Congressman Walberg as well as several community leaders will be speaking.

Come on out, pick up your yard sign, and show your support for your Congressman!

Recall that Lenawee County is Walberg's home county. He's lived in Tipton for years, knows everybody, and won the county with 55 percent of the vote against Sharon Renier, won it with 69 percent in the 2006 GOP primary against Joe Schwarz, and won it with 57 percent in a six-way primary in 2004. In other words, this is his base.

I spoke earlier with someone who attended Walberg's kickoff rally. How many people showed up?


Including staff.

Contrast this with Mark Schauer's town hall in Adrian a couple of weeks before the primary, which had somewhere between 60 and 70 people attend.

Walberg's still got the advantage, but he can only draw a crowd of 10 in Lenawee County? If that's true, then he's got plenty of reasons to be worried about November.
