Welcome To The Swamp

What you find when you Drain the Swamp

The Hill:

“The Republican National Committee (RNC) is investing $250 million in an extensive field strategy aimed at retaining the GOP House majority in the upcoming midterm elections, The Associated Press reported Monday.

“Our No. 1 priority is keeping the House. We have to win the House,” Juston Johnson, the committee’s political director, told the AP. “That is the approach we took to put the budget together.”

“The plan is particularly directed at House seats in Florida, New York and California, the AP said.”

Bloomberg:

“A group working to help Republicans keep control of the U.S. House said Tuesday it plans to place orders for $48 million in television and online advertising for the weeks before November’s election and will focus its efforts on 20 to 30 districts.

“The Congressional Leadership Fund, a super political action committee endorsed by House Speaker Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders, said the planned spending is the “first of several rounds of advertising reservations for fall 2018.”

“The super-PAC has already been one of the top television advertisers in this year’s midterm campaign. It ended the first quarter with about $25 million in the bank, meaning it will still need to do considerable fundraising to meet its spending plans.”

Because everyone knows that the Scissorheads are the smartest spitballers on the ‘net, we don’t need to remind everyone that it is illegal for PACs to coordinate with party committees, like the RNC. But you know, if they publish/leak their plans and the other side happens to read about it, oh, like in the WaPo, then it is kosher amiright?

Toll Call, er, Roll Call, by the way, listed which candidates specifically will benefit from the largesse, so you know, everyone can coordinate the money:

“The television ad reservations are as follows:

Well-played, ZEGS. Well-played.

  3. Not one from the terrible sand kingdom of Arizonastan is on the list, not even CD2 which is competitive as hell, or CD8 which is deep deep red in deep deep trouble (at least until we get Hiral Tipirneni in and kick that smug asshole Lesko to the curb, since she had to quit the Lege to run. Here go throw money at her! http://hiralforcongress.com 🙂

    Hiral is even or even leading in some polls. This was Trent fucking Franks district, about as red as it gets in AZ. If we get Hiral elected, I predict more GOP congresscritters will suddenly have an urge to ‘‘Run AWAY! Run AWAY!’ ‘spend time with their family’.

    We might flip Flakes senate seat too, since Kyrsten Sinema is likely going to end up running again Five Star Joe or Khemtrails Kelli Ward, since AZ GOP primary voters are certifiable lunatics, they’ll probably consider Martha McSally too liberal. This years general with pissed off Dems voting in wave numbers may change this state’s complexion.

    I am feeling this weird, faint emotion, I think its called ‘hope’??

    I don’t understand why the “party of fiscal responsibility” is spending so much on advertising when they already own the voting machines. Seems a shameful waste of job creator money.

    I just looked up Tenney’s opponent, and will send some simoleons to Anthony Brindisi. It’s time to drive the Blue State Republican into extinction.
