Is a second SuperPAC targeting Schmidt?
Is a second SuperPAC targeting Jean Schmidt for Defeat?
COAST certainly hopes so.
About two weeks ago, the Alliance for Self-Governance announced it would be coming into the Second Congressional District to aid Dr. Brad Wenstrup in upending Jean Schmidt. And they have already unleashed at least two district-wide mailings targeting Schmidt and her flim-flammery on TARP and raising the nation's debt limit. That PAC appears to be fully committed to this race.
Today, COAST just received a Google Alert that www.RestoreAmericasVoice.org is now also highlighting the Schmidt race: see here and here. They point out that the bipartisan Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) have named Schmidt one of the 14 most corrupt members of Congress (something most of our local media seem to have missed).
Restore America's Voice is a significant participant in contested races, having spent more than $200,000 in the 2010 election cycle in independent expenditures, including helping such COAST heroes as Jim DeMint, Pat Toomey and Michelle Bachman.
COAST encourages both PACs and anyone else nationwide seeking integrity in Congress, and progress on tax and spending issues, to come now and spend their resources to defeat Jean Schmidt. We welcome your aid.
