AP’s Ron Fournier delivers for his almost boss, John McCain

Ron Fournier, the Washington bureau chief for the Associated Press, interviewed for a job with John McCain a couple years ago. He is featured in the infamous Liz Sidoti donuts video. Fournier is also the reporter who told Karl Rove to “keep up the fight” during the 2004 campaign. Today, he’s out with an “analysis” of Obama’s choice of Biden as his running mate. Sounds like it was written by the McCain press shop. Fournier is working for McCain from the outside (and holding out for a job in the McCain administration.)


On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
