Nancy Pelosi Feels a Great Disturbance in the Force

Nancy Pelosi’s latest fundraising e-mail could probably double as one for the NRCC:


Speaker Pelosi just sent this message to DCCC supporters:

Friend –Thank you for helping Democrats surpass our grassroots goal for the crucial 100 Days Deadline. Your generous support has enabled us to begin the final 100 days of this election from a position of strength. I cannot thank you enough.However, just as soon as word came of the contribution that put us over the top, we received news of a disturbing surge in Republican fundraising. House Republicans are now claiming to have had their strongest fundraising in five years.

Then again, this is Nancy Pelosi. She doesn’t like any kind of surge.
