SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Senate candidate from Connecticut, Ned Lamont, who won his primary race over an old guard incumbent this summer, will join John Edwards, Phil Angelides, and hundreds of rank-and- file leaders from California's largest and fastest growing union next week to rally for fundamental change in healthcare and the labor movement, in Sacramento and in Washington, D.C.
The 2nd Annual SEIU United Healthcare Workers - West (UHW) Leadership Conference, on September 8th and 9th at the San Jose Convention Center, will gather 2,000 frontline healthcare workers from across the state -- leaders of the union's 140,000 caregivers throughout California -- who will plan next year's work to change the course of the country.

Is that not the kewls of kewls. I've become a Ned Head! Go JRE too to help out Dems in California.
Smaller edition tonight...just finding a snipper or two.
Here's one from Wednesday Wire:
1. The growing power of blogs.
John Edwards makes a telling comment, based on Ned Lamont's win in Connecticut, about blogs being important on a national level; 2. Sen. Schumer comes out four square for Net Neutrality; 3. 1800 individuals respond to MyDD, dailykos and ActBlue to make 7500+ donations worth $180K to Democratic candidates in less than a week and 4. the blogs - left and right - force Senators to openly declare that they did not put a secret hold on the Obama/Coburn legislation to create an internet database on government spending. All are testaments to the growing power of blogs and the internet in political affairs.
This just in...update, August 31
JRE is to picnic with Senator Durbin and Rock Island County Dems on Monday at Illiniwek Park (I think it is the forest preserve). Hmmm, sounds like it may be a CJ opportunity for someone.
Hotline mentions the Troika again of IA, NH, and SC, in response to a David Broader editorial today, saying he thinks the Dems messed up by voting their approval for the new schedule. I disagree with Mr. Broder in that there won't be enough time for voters to measure the candidates up. Heck, they're already visiting those places anyway--this year.
More buzz l8tr...
