Bruno Blasts Obama

Thursday, September 04, 2008

In St. Paul, former State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno livened up the New York delegation, when he gave a speech comparing Barack Obama to his former rival Eliot Spitzer. Karen Dewitt has more:

Bruno told the delegation that people should beware of articulate charismatic candidates with Hollywood style ads on T.V. after what occurred in New York after the last election.

BRUNO: He will do more to help deliver the Republican party in New York State to victory than anyone else... and that's the late governor, Eliot Spitzer. (laughter)

DEWITT: The former Senate leader known for his candid speaking manner called Obama a wimp and a product of marketing and criticized times that Obama was absent from voting when he served in the Illinois State Legislature.

In St. Paul, I'm Karen DeWitt.
