First on the Ticker: Wilson challenger to raise cash in D.C.
http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/09/17/first-o... /

Rep. Joe Wilson's Democratic challenger Rob Miller has collected more than $1 million online since Wilson shouted "You lie!" at President Obama, but next week Miller will be raising money the old-fashioned way.

The South Carolina Democrat, who has yet to make a public appearance since Wilson's outburst, will head to Washington for a pair of fundraisers on Capitol Hill.

A group of ex-staffers for former South Carolina Sen. Fritz Hollings and Rep. Jim Clyburn will host an event for Miller at a Capitol Hill restaurant on Wednesday, with a minimum suggested donation of $250, according to an invitation provided to CNN.

Later in the evening, Miller will head over to a Pennsylvania Avenue bar for a low-dollar meet-and-greet with "young professionals." The entry fee for that gathering is $20.10.

1. I donated to his campaign a couple of days ago.

Nice chap.

His Dad died when he was 14 years old.

He joined the Marines at age 20.

He did 2 tours of duty in Iraq.

He's married with a family.

Plus he's a Democrat from South Carolina.


As John Kerry would say, "he's the Real Deal".


On edit: changed "sent him a Sawbuck" to "donated to his campaign" for those who don't know what a Sawbuck is...

2. Could you add something about Joe "You LIE!" Wilson to your title?
I don't think most folks recognize the name.
