Mayoral speculations, next installment

The Philadelphia Public Record has a look at three of the frontrunners for the Philadelphia Democratic mayoral primary in 2007, Saidel, Fattah, and Dougherty -- particularly at their fundraising efforts and supporters.
Labor, on the whole, has yet to make any decisions as to who will be supported at this stage. Labor leaders were in abundance at all three events, with unions sending representatives to each party. The conclusion from that is organized labor, for the most part, are in a wait and see attitude, as one leader said, "It's a long two years before we have choose sides."
Fun for horserace junkies.

The Public Record is a weird, biased, yet informative paper. It's the flagship publication of old-school, political hack, ward Philadelphia, and I mean that in a good way. They don't like progressives like Nutter; it's conspicuous that they didn't mention him at all - he's been having fundraisers all Spring.

I think they couched their choice of grouping as those that all had fundraisers in one week (thus Street aids scrambling to be in evidence, etc.). But your bet sounds about right...
