* Background is here and here if you need it. I just got off the phone with Comptroller Susana Mendoza who told me that Jimmy Kimmel flew Dick Bigger, Jr. out to Los Angeles this morning and he’ll be on tonight’s show. Kimmel put him up for two days and will take him around LA tomorrow to show him the sites and then will fly him back on Thursday.
Bigger, the Henderson County Democratic Chair, became a big hit almost as soon as Mendoza released a TV ad which contained a brief cameo. Both Kimmel and Stephen Colbert played the ad on their respective shows, and Colbert used some of the outtakes the campaign gave to us last month. Kimmel is apparently now upping the ante.
