Dem Congresswoman: Don't Blame Weprin For Obama's Problems

Another surrogate who's also helping out Weprin's campaign - Jon "Bowzer" Bauman, former lead singer for Sha Na Na. No stranger to special elections, Bauman also campaigned for now-Rep. Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., in the May contest where Democrats pulled off an upset. While this race's dynamics are now reversed, the 9th District contest is especially near and dear to Bauman, a Queens native. "The people who believe passionately in this notion that we can cut, cut, cut our way our of this economic malaise that was caused at the end of the Bush administration, they will show up on Tuesday," Bauman told On Call. But as long as our people show up as well, we will prevail." The '60s and '70s singer is doing his part to reach the key senior demographic, going to several senior centers Bauman gave a preview of the lyrical message he's taking to those groups in the final hours: "Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba dang de dang dang vote for David Weprin."
