Q&A with John Anzalone
Anzalone, a partner at Anzalone Liszt Research, works for U.S. Rep. Bobby Bright and 18 other congressmen. The well-respected firm has also worked for Senate candidates, candidates for governor, the campaign of Barack Obama, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic Governors' Association and a variety of other candidates and organizations. The firm worked for the gubernatorial campaign of U.S. Rep. Artur Davis until a recent split.
In the "Movers & Shakers" segment, Anzalone answers questions about health care, Eric Massa, and talks about some of his candidates including Bright, a Montgomery Democrat.
"So it's all about being prepared, having a connection with the district and having something to say. And in a lot of cases, it's about not being vulnerable to the attacks. In the case of people like Bobby Bright or Travis Childers, they aren't. It's just tough to make an argument against them just because they're Democrats, and saying they voted for Pelosi just doesn't cut it. Bobby Bright is one of the safest incumbents. Republicans will try to tell you he's one of the most vulnerable, but it's just not that way." -- John Anzalone
