Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN/NH) is in trouble. Polls show him trailing DFLer Rick Nolan. His support for ending the Ryan Budget which would end Medicare and Social Security plus moving to New Hampshire haven’t helped his cause. He’s tried to portray himself as a moderate, but has failed.
Now word comes that Rep. Michele Bachmann will be riding to his rescue. Cravaack gets access to Bachmann’s vaunted email list. Campaign gold.
Michele Bachmann is wielding her mighty email list of donors on behalf of fellow Minnesota Republican Chip Cravaack, who’s locked in a highly competitive race with former DFL U.S. Rep. RicK Nolan in the 8th Congressional District.
In a message sent to supporters Tuesday, Bachmann said she rarely sends fundraising emails on behalf of other candidates but she made an exception for Cravaack because “the stakes are so high” that Democrats could retake the U.S. House. Actually, many political forecasters, such as Larry Sabato at the University of Virginia, believe Democrats will gain fewer than 10 of the 25 total seats they’d need to take a majority in the House.
Bachmann wouldn’t help a moderate. She would only help a pure Tea Party Republican.
Time to pony up some money for Rick Nolan.
