Recently, we mentioned the website “Harry Mitchell Watch” and how that site is keeping a watchful eye on Congressman Harry Mitchell.
Now, thanks to the brilliance of radio talk-show host, Hugh Hewitt, a new political action committee called Reverse the Vote Victory Committee has launched utilizing new media to help conservative candidates across the country. The new website is called “Reverse the Vote.”
This site will specifically raise money to help the winners of Republican Primaries in 24 districts where a Democrat is vulnerable. Guess what congressional district in Arizona is being targeted? That’s right CD-8!
Here’s how this will work. The site will raise money nationwide under the theme of reversing the vote. Once the Primary Election takes place in 2010, whoever emerges victorious from the Primary on the Republican ticket will be the recipient of a divided pot of money.
What is your role? First, get out and help your favorite CD-8 candidate. There are already three Republicans running in CD-8. Next, give generously to this effort so that our CD-8 winner can get a larger share of the money raised.
Why is this important? Because in 2008, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee pumped over a $375,000 dollars into the 2008 General Election to buoy Gabrielle Giffords up by tearing down Tim Bee.
It was a real travesty that the DCCC spent that amount of money to attack a good Republican candidate in order to shore up a substandard Democratic candidate.
Don’t expect the DCCC to bail out Gabrielle again in 2010. Other “more important” Democrats need the DCCC money and Gabby ain’t one of them. Besides, the DCCC is having difficulty raising money this time around (You wonder why).
Head on over to ReversetheVote.org and make your donation today.
And don’t forget about the other great conservative Republican candidates running for Congress here in Arizona!
