Why Does the DCCC Continue to Spend on Bobby Bright?
Edited on Sat Oct-02-10 12:50 PM by Yeggo
It's one thing to support a candidate that doesn't vote with you on everything. I understand that completely. But it's entirely something else when you shell out hundreds of thousands of dollars for someone who's running television ads touting his support for John Boehner.

I don't get it.

1. Bright is only a place holder to keep the repubs from having the seat. I don't think he can win.
The only reason he got in in the first place is because he rode Obama's coat tails and had the support of black voters. He's a do nothing congressman and the money they spend on him could be put to better use helping dems with an actual chance to win.
