GOP Gov. Heartbroken
MINNEAPOLIS - Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty said he's "heartbroken" that Bruce Springsteen (news) plans to rock against President Bush (news - web sites). Opening his weekly radio show Friday with "Born to Run," the 43-year-old Pawlenty called Springsteen one of his musical idols.
"I really appreciate his music, but I wish he wouldn't interject his music with politics," said Pawlenty, co-chairman of Bush's re-election campaign in Minnesota.
Springsteen and REM will perform Oct. 5 at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center as part of a series of concerts being staged in nine swing states to oppose Bush's re-election.
The money generated will go to America Coming Together, a group dedicated to defeating Bush." The shows will be presented by MoveOn Pac, the electoral arm of the liberal interest group MoveOn.org.
"I'm going to have to miss this one," Pawlenty said
