Greetings to all of you Leavenworth Street regulars, as well as those who came here via Don Walton’s column in the LJS.
As mentioned in Don’s column, Leavenworth Street has received press credentials for the 2008 National Republican convention in Minneapolis. We will be providing you with updates on the goings-on there, the pomp and circumstance and hopefully some reports on Nebraskans in attendance.
As many of you know, we here at Leavenworth Street have to (for various reasons) keep our anonymity. Because of that and other reasons, none of the Leavenworth Street “staff” (as it were) will be able to attend. However, a local and trusted politico will be there in our place.
That person is local political consultant, Jordan McGrain! Jordan is extremely knowledgeable about the Nebraska political scene, and we are honored that he accepted our offer to represent Leavenworth Street in Minneapolis.
Now before you go asking, no, Jordan is not “Street Sweeper”, he has not written for Leavenworth Street, and he does not know our identities. We only communicate via email and IM , and Jordan is not able to post directly to our blog. He will however be writing to us during the convention (and hopefully sending photos). Jordan is a great writer himself, is quick and, as you can see above, the camera likes him (that 5 o’clock shadow is permanent — just like Clooney’s).
When September rolls around, we look forward to Jordan’s reports.
And if you’re new here, please feel free to comment. (You don’t have to sign-in to speak your mind on Leavenworth Street…)
