Before politics - we must dance!
Lori Kurtzman reports that Republican 2nd Congressional District candidate Tom Brinkman hadn't shown up at his election-night party at Million's in Mount Lookout as of 9 p.m.
Turns out he and his wife, Cathy, had a Tuesday night dance class at Community Methodist Church in Hyde Park. Their lesson: rhumba
His supporters said they had a good week, sending out 450,000 mailings in the final days before the election. Brinkman apparently picked up most of the cost himself with a late $50,000 donation, according to a Federal Elections Commission report filed Saturday.
