Just a couple of things to add to Liz Benjamin's post yesterday about replacement Senator-front runner Caroline Kennedy's visit to the Bronx offices of Congressman Eliot Engel (she also met with Assemblyman Jeff Dinowitz). We heard today that Kennedy tentatively agreed to speak at the Benjamin Franklin Democratic Club's annual fundraiser this year. Also, with the state budget gap expected to be around $15 billion, Dem leaders are banking on Hil's replacement bringing home at least half of that. They believe Kennedy has the name, connections and star power to make it happen. One thing's for certain, Engel and Dinowitz are Kennedy supporters.
