A Little (More) Help From Their Friends; Hall, KT Set Fundraisers With Big Names

The John Hall campaign today announced another fundraising concert featuring some reasonably big names in the music industry.

Hall, himself a musician and former pop star with the band Orleans in the '70's, will benefit from a concert featuring rocker Jackson Browne as well as Roseanne Cash (Johnny's dughter with lots of big hits of her own), country rocker and current Air America radio host Steve Earle and folk-rocker and five-time Grammy winner Nanci Griffith.

Browne has performed on behalf of Hall before as have Bonnie Raitt, Pete Seeger and others.


KT McFarland's campaign today also announced fundraisers featuring some big names.

Former Massachusetts governor and candidate for the same office in New York, Bill Weld, and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger will stump for McFarland.

Weld will appear on behalf of the Republican candidate for Senator on Aug. 14, while Kissinger will appear on behalf of McFarland on Sept. 6.

The press release was short on details (time, place, nature of events and cost), so I'm going to assume they're still be worked out.


Andrew Cuomo, the double-digit front-runner for the Democratic nod for attorney general, today released his first campaign T.V. ad. The ad basically says Cuomo's Democratic opponents must be irrelevent because the Republicans are gunning for him alone. (Click here)

Cuomo leads Mark Green by double digits in the latest Siena poll, released earlier this week. The two other candidates, Charlie King and Sean Patrick Maloney barely registered in the poll.
