Charlie Cook, of Cook Political Report, showed up his first time (in the video library) on C-SPAN to talk governors, raising taxes, and state politics.
What is the cook political report? Who subscribes to it?
"The subscribers are pretty much lobbyists, political action committees, political journalists…people that need to follow elections on a very close basis. I try to not only say who is running but more importantly what are the dynamics in the race, who is ahead, who is behind, and why."
"It costs $150/year…It’s about 35% corporate executives, 30% trade associations, 10% labor unions and then groups that range from the far left to the far right."
