Dem Whip Steny Hoyer in SD Today to Campaign for Scott Peters


Media Alert   

2nd Most Powerful Democrat in Congress Campaigning for Scott Peters 

When:   TODAY, Friday, August 24, 2012, 9:45 a.m.  

Where:  Offices of Rudman Gellar, Robbins & Dowd, LLP, 655 Broadway, Suite 1900, downtown San Diego.  

What:     Democratic Whip Hoyer is the featured guest at a fundraiser for Scott Peters for Congress today. Following the event members of the media are invited to hear from Congressman Hoyer about the race for the 52nd Congressional District and why it is one of the most closely-watched House races in the nation. Both national parties have focused a high level of attention and resources to it and two recent polls published by national media outlets show Peters and Bilbray in a dead heat, not a strong showing for a 12-year incumbent.  

Stu Rothenberg of the National Journal recently included Peters in an article titled “On a Run of Strong Congressional Candidates,” calling him the kind of politician who prefers results to posturing, something Washington, D.C. needs.”  Rothenberg has also ranked this race a “Pure Toss Up.”
