The Scoop continues to hear rumors that U.S. Sen. John Kerry may come to town on behalf of mayoral candidate Chris Coleman. The Bush endorsement of last August continues to turn at the center of those opposing Kelly. Because it was pretty much Randy Kelly and Zell Miller on the Democratic side for the president last fall, Kerry could make the rounds of aisle-crossers pretty quickly, since Miller left office in January.
"We're not prepared to say anything about that right now," says Coleman spokesman Bob Hume.
He did hint, however, that the campaign thinks it might top Kelly's one-day fund fest on Summit Avenue, the gathering with Chicago Mayor Richard Daley that reportedly netted $100,000 in one fell swoop. It would take a big headliner for that kind of cash.
