Last night was the reception for the Ny State Democratic Committee. I asked Herman "Denny" Farrell how it was that he's loisted as uncommitted....and he said that some blog whose had it wrong. He is a supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton and has been for a long time.

I told him I would try to correct the record. I posted this last night at the blog Open Left.

So please add him into you rClinton total...which would make it 266.

If you need more verifiacation you may email me. Denny is a long time personal this is true information.
