John Dougherty: "I'll be Back"

Posted By on Tue, Aug 24, 2010 at 10:50 PM

When John Dougherty walked into Hotel Congress tonight it was like Paris Hilton walked into your brother's eighth grade gym class - he was the Dem celebrity.

After pushing through the crowd to get to the podium, he said, "We're going to be around for more races in the future."

He said he'd consider running for U.S. Congress, as well as another turn for U.S. Senate.

"For too long folks we've been ignored ... money has been stolen from the middle class."

Then the Hotel Congress sea parted, and Dougherty tried to make his way to the lobby. Elvis, er, Paris, has left the gym.
