Things Heat Up Between Doolittle & Primary Challenger Mike Holmes

Excerpt from Gus Thompson's article in the Auburn Journal:
Doolittle co-sponsored legislation requiring a 45-day congressional review of the sale but has not directly criticized the Bush administration.

Holmes said that while the administration didn't thoroughly consult with Congress, Bush had assured Americans that all departments had thoroughly reviewed security issues.

"This effort by John Doolittle sounds like a little bit of grandstanding to me in order to reinforce what he pretends to be a strong national defense posture," Holmes said. "And this is clearly associated with his re-election efforts."

Holmes added that the British-owned P&O had been managing ports in the U.S. for some time.
BTW - Received yet another full-color, glossy, tax-funded mailing from Doolittle today.
