News Scoop: Kerry to Join Press Conference on Electoral Reform Tomorrow

Here’s a follow up to Ron’s earlier post “Kerry Working on Voting Rights”…

I have received word from a trusted source that John Kerry will be joining Barbara Boxer, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and Hilary Clinton in a major press conference on Electoral Reform tomorrow at 12:45.

Word has it, that Kerry will be revealing tomorrow during the press conference, that his email sent to supporters through on January 5th urging them to call Senator Leader Bill Frist and House Speaker Dennis Hastert and “demand that Congress commit itself this year to reforming the electoral system,” resulted in over 35,000 phone calls to their offices. The buzz that day on the blogs was that we shut down the phone lines to both offices.

There is no doubt that John Kerry has been a busy man for the past few weeks. He introduced the “Kids Come First Act”; he spoke last week at the Brookings Institution on the Kyoto Protocol; and on Monday, he spoke at the Worcester Telegram and Gazette Visions Ceremony on standing by our military. And, that is only a portion of what he has been up to in recent weeks. He has also introduced multiple pieces of legislation to help and protect Small Businesses, as the Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Small Business & Entrepreneurship.
