Dems' Pitch: Clay Shaw, 'Rubber Stamp'



U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, who will become speaker if Democrats capture the House this fall, circulated a letter to top Florida fund-raisers Wednesday urging them to write checks to state Sen. Ron Klein's "absolutely pivotal" race against Rep. Clay Shaw of Fort Lauderdale.
Pelosi casts this contest as one between "rising Democratic star" Klein and "the White House attack machine," which she says is "pulling out all the stops to try to keep this seat." She claims Shaw, a member of Congress since 1980, supports the Bush-Cheney agenda 90 percent of the time. "Help Democrat Ron Klein Take Down a Republican Rubber Stamp," the letter concludes.
