Steve Novick, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate from Oregon, will be joining the folks at Drinking Liberally this Thursday, May 3rd, to talk progressive/liberal politics.
(Drinking Liberally meets at 7pm, first and third Thursdays of every month, at the Lucky Lab brewpub at SE 9th and Hawthorne.)
The Oregonian's Steve Duin called Novick "an original"--"savagely smart, issue-driven, relentless as a junkyard dog, easily underestimated."
(Is it me, or does it seem to you that the only way Duin could have made it sound more like a movie review would have been if he called him a "taut thriller"?)
But don't take Duin's word for it--here's Novick's infamous and sly Willamette Week cover essay "If I Ran," from last January, spelling out how he could use Gordon Smith's oh-so-vulnerable vulnerabilities to defeat him in the election.
And here's DL's own Jonathan Singer's interview with Novick from two weeks ago at MyDD.
The Republicans have patted themselves for years for their self-professed committment to "family values"--but it's Novick who plans to make it possible for Oregon's junior Senator to spend more time with his family after next year. You'd think they'd show more gratitude, wouldn't you?
So bring your questions and your ideas Thursday night. Bring your copy of Willy Week for him to sign. But don't miss out!
(Drinking Liberally is not established as a political organization in any state and is not registered with the Federal Election Committee as a political committee. In a sentence: Drinking Liberally doesn't do endorsements, including Steve Novick.)
