Wetterling to give Democratic response to presidential radio address
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- House Democratic candidate Patty Wetterling, who hit the airwaves Tuesday with the first television campaign ad citing the Foley page scandal, will deliver the national Democratic response to President Bush's weekly radio address.
Wetterling, whose 11-year-old son was abducted in 1989 and has never been found, is expected to focus on child safety issues in the wake of former Rep. Mark Foley's, R-Florida, inappropriate correspondence with a teenage House page.
Wettering is in a competitive race for the seat being vacated by Rep. Mark Kennedy, R-Minnesota, who is running for Senate. State Sen. Michele Bachmann is GOP nominee in the House race.
