I guess they can’t stand the heat.
With their poll numbers plummeting, some House Republicans have resorted to hiding from their constituents and holding “pay-per-view” town halls. That’s why your support of our Accountability August Campaign is so critical. You're helping House Democrats keep the spotlight on Tea Party Republicans and stand up to their radical vision for America.
On behalf of the DCCC, and all the members of our Democratic Caucus, I can’t thank you enough for what you do. As a small token of my appreciation, I hope you enjoy this edition of @Stake.
Better bring your wallet if you want to ask your Republican Congressman a question in person. Some Republicans, including House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, are charging constituents $15 or more to meet them in person and ask a question. No open-to-the-public town hall meetings for Congressman Ryan or several of his other colleagues including Ben Quayle (R-AZ). So much for open government.
Latest Polls: GOP House Majority at Risk
Republicans’ radical Tea Party agenda is costing them with voters. Disapproval ratings for the Republican Party are at record highs and in a new Gallup Poll, Democrats hold a seven point advantage in the congressional ballot.
New York Times number cruncher Nate Silver believes this indicates a substantial shift in the partisan climate that could threaten the Republican majority in the House of Representatives. We need just 24 more seats to take back the Speaker’s gavel. Because of you, our campaign is building momentum and we’ve got Republicans on the run.
The first Federal Election Commission (FEC) fundraising deadline since the Tea Party Downgrade is fast approaching.
