There is another candidate also trying to buy a seat but in the U.S. House of Representatives. Figuring that the $500,000 that he has wasted so far is not enough the National Republican Congressional Committee has intervened in a Republican primary and is spending a significant amount to resuscitate the moribund Huffman campaign. I don’t know what their internal polls say but I guess they figured that a few more $100,000 might do the trick.
The problem is that if, and that is still an if, the NRCC can buy the primary for Steve he has a general election to win. Sure they will come into town with more money but they will face a tough Democratic opponent with a party more united that will be the case for Huffman. Quite simply the conservatives will not lift a finger for Huffman and Gabrielle Giffords will make short work of him. She is a better campaigner, speaker, and fund-raiser. The two will very so little on issues that the one who runs a better operation will win. That person will by Gabby.
Aside from the conservatives Huffman should not plan on much overtime from the Hellon / Carroll wing of the party either.
I am not a big supporter of NRCC but those that are might want to let them know that they are wasting their money.
