The national parties are playing (a little) in CD22
Do the DCCC and the NRCC have too much money?
I really can't figure out why congressional committee either is spending money in CD22. For the DCCC, it's a district that Rahm Emanuel (subject of a recent WashPost uber-puff piece) should be viewing as rock solid. If he loses this one, he needn't worry about his chances of Democrats regaining the House. Why bother dropping a piece trying to confuse Republicans about write-ins?
For his Republican counterpart, it's tough for me to believe that there aren't Republicans who could use the money. If you were going to spend, it'd be smart to attack Lampson. However, I haven't seen any negative ads on TV. After all, Shelley won't do attack Lampson (time for Kyle Janek in two years?), and may as well soften him up for the campaign two years from now, when he'll have had 2 years to try and burnish the idea that he's not a standard, run-of-the-mill Democrat. And hey, maybe in two years Lampson will actually live in the district!
But seriously, I almost wonder if this was a ploy that Reynolds used just to make Emanuel and Lampson spend money.
