“Fighting Dems”

There’s what I think is the first big New York fundraiser for one of the “fighting Dems,” the handful of Iraq vets running for Congres as Democrats, next Tuesday at 7 at Happy Valley.

The romance between anti-war New York Democrats and ex-soldiers like Patrick Murphy, who’s running in Pennsylvania, is obvious; and veterans (unlike, say, junior New York Senators) appear to get to skip the netroots usual ideology test.
