Folks, I understand that elected officials need to maintain a campaign fund. And so they even have fundraisers in off years. Fine let them hold fundraisers in 2013. But in an election year, where some of their fellow Republicans incumbents are facing serious challenges and Republican challengers are facing an uphill battle, having a fundraiser is simply wrong.
There is only so much spare money out there in people’s pockets. Republican candidates with opponents need the money. They don’t need this unwarranted competition from people that are getting a free ride this year.
So please, before you make your donations, make sure your money is going to Republicans who have opponents to face.
And if these strictly self-interested Republican politicos insist on sucking the oxygen out of the room by competing for the few dollars available in this Obama exacerbated recession, we’ll just have to see that in 2014 they get Republican challenger in the primary. And if they don’t think we can do it, I would remind them what of what grassroots base did in the State Committee races!!
