Sacramento Pays Attention

Ellen Tauscher Weekly, V2.02

From the Sacramento Bee:

Inspired by the defeat of U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut in a Democratic primary last year, liberal Democratic bloggers in California are taking aim at a top target in the 2008 elections: Rep. Ellen Tauscher, D-Alamo, a Lieberman ally and chairwoman of the moderate New Democrat Coalition.

In criticizing Tauscher for voting to support the war in Iraq, they've found a powerful ally: Markos Moulitsas ZĂșniga, who runs the Berkeley-founded DailyKos, the most popular liberal blog on the Internet.

Last month, ZĂșniga wrote, "We will have a candidate, and there will be a primary," in Tauscher's district.

Ah, allies.
