The Lonely Conservative notices a report that Nancy Pelosi was a quiet late addition into a fundraiser for Kathy Hochul, the Democrat who hopes to be a beneficiary from the three-way fight in the special Congressional race in New York’s 26th District, where she faces Republican Jane Corwin and Obama-backing, Charlie-Rangel-fund-accepting self-proclaimed Tea Party candidate Jack Davis.
I’m more struck by the fact that the House Democratic Leader wasn’t widely advertised as the headline speaker at a party fundraiser on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. If organizers were wary of putting the spotlight on Pelosi there, where isn’t she a liability? I’m sure the first explanation will be scheduling issues, but the last vote in the House of Representatives on Friday was 3 p.m., and the fundraiser was scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m..
Hey, if she and Pelosi are such buddies, why no appearance in the district, Nancy?
UPDATE: And the newest NRCC ad plays directly on this theme:
Will it work? Pelosi clearly played a big role in a lot of GOP House campaigns last year. But then again, for Republicans, special House elections in upstate New York are never easy…
Ah. Because Corwin is obligated to talk about her religious beliefs; clearly, there’s something wrong with you know, those people, right, fake Twitter account holder? Obviously, her faith is worth bringing into this election fight. We can’t have these people getting involved in politics and running for office. Next thing you’ll know, some Mormon will end up being Senate Majority Leader or something.
Either Jack Davis or Kathy Hochul has a fan who’s bashing Mormons in their efforts to tear down the GOP nominee.
