Mark Kennedy Appearence on Hugh Hewitt Show

Congressman and 2006 Senate Candidate Mark Kennedy appeared on the Hugh Hewitt show this evening to discuss his upcoming Senate race.

Upon questioning, Kennedy stated his belief that his campaign would need to raise around fifteen million dollars to win the race.

The issue of Bush's judicial appointees being blocked in the Senate by fillibuster was also raised. Kennedy stated that the Democrat use of a fillibuster in these cases was de facto changing the Constitution, which requires only a simple majority vote for Senate confirmation to the bench.

Kennedy also stated enthusiasm for Minnesota bloggers suppporting his race, and even plugged our own First Ringer who has joined him on the campaign trail for the past three days (though he stumbled over the current name of this blog - big surprise).

Hugh Hewitt stated his intention to have Kennedy on his show many times between now and the 2006 race, and encouraged his listeners to visit Kennedy's website and donate to the campaign. Hewitt was a major supporter of John Thune in his race against former Senator Tom Daschle in the 2004 elections, and seems to be gearing up to support Congressman Mark Kennedy in a similar way this time around.
