Bossie: “Quayle Campaign Statement Desperate Attempt By A Desperate Campaign To Change The Narrative”

David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United, and Fritz Wenzel, President of Wenzel Strategies, made the following statements in response to the Ben Quayle campaign’s desperate vitriolic statement against a poll commissioned by Citizens United Political Victory Fund that showed Quayle down 13 points to David Schweikert:

“The Quayle statement released last night was a desperate attempt by a desperate campaign to change the narrative. The fact is Quayle is losing big. It is always a telltale sign that an establishment campaign is floundering when they attack polls and use over-the-top language like ‘liar’ in a statement. You would expect these kinds of desperate tactics from the Obama campaign – but not from a Republican in a GOP primary. Ben Quayle is on his last legs in a losing campaign.”

— David N. Bossie, President of Citizens United

“It’s not surprising when candidates who perform poorly in public opinion surveys attack those surveys, so while we at Wenzel Strategies are disappointed with the harsh language of the Quayle congressional campaign, we are not surprised. The Quayle campaign joins a growing list of candidates who have disparaged our work and who have gone down in flames, including out-going U.S. Senator Richard Lugar from Indiana. We don’t predict election outcomes. We simply measure public opinion at a given period of time, but this latest survey in Arizona shows Quayle is clearly losing the race to hold onto a seat in Congress.”

— Fritz Wenzel, President of Wenzel Strategies
