Josh Zeitz: Liveblog on Dkos-8:30AM Tuesday

I just wanted to let all of you know that Josh Zeitz, Democratic candidate for the U.S. House in NJ-4 challenging incumbent Chris Smith, will be posting a diary and liveblogging here on Dkos at 8:30 AM (EST), on Tuesday morning. If you have any questions you'd like him to have in advance, please feel free to email me at ian_at_joshzeitz_dot_com. I will pass the questions along and Josh will try to answer them. I am a volunteer and Josh's Netroots Outreach Coordinator.

I apologize for such a brief diary, I was looking for an openthread but didn't see one. Thanks.
