New York City - Joan Jett Running in NY as Dean Delegate
If she is elected during New York's March 2 presidential primary, Jett would go to the Democratic National Convention next summer as a Dean delegate.

Dean's New York campaign director, Ethan Geto, said Jett was an early and active supporter of Dean's campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination, including performing at fund-raising events.

Jett, 43, said she agrees with Dean's stance against the war in Iraq, though she is a champion of members of the U.S. military. She performed twice for troops in the Afghanistan military theater in the months after Sept. 11, 2001, and has also performed for American troops in Bosnia.

Alright Joan! You go girl! (For those who don't know, I met and chatted with Joan on one of her tour stops here. She is a very nice, soft-spoken, articulate lady.)
