7th Congressional District hopeful Ed Perlmutter is getting a helping hand today from John Kerry.
Kerry’s schedule Friday includes a private fundraising reception for Perlmutter at the home of Brooke and M.J. Banbury in LoDo. Co-hosts are paying a suggested contribution of $1,000, with others expected to contribute $500 at the door.The Perfect Gift For Everyone On Your List!Give a Gift Now »

The 7th District seat, being vacated by Bob Beauprez, is said to be one of the most competitive races in the country. Also in the running for the Democratic nomination: Former state legislator Peggy Lamm and Herb Rubenstein.
Why is Kerry flying in to stump for Perlmutter? I suspect the fact that Perlmutter helped lead Kerry’s Colorado presidential campaign has something to do with it.
