You mean that he actually showed up at one of his rallys ? He didn't show up for the one last week in Hazlet NJ. I heard that they are by invitation only. Maybe because that way he doesn't get asked any tough questions. I met him at a rally about 8 years ago when he was running against Cary.He need freight members back then I even got my picture taken shaking hands with him. Hoffa was happy to answer my questions back then Do you think that he is worried about getting enough votes to get elected ? Maybe thats why, according to Keegel, Hoffa chose to campaign on a loading dock in Chicago rather than to get his message out to all Teamsters by attending the debate. I doubt it.
