One of the major stories coming on the heels of yesterdays financial disclosures was the news that 4th District Challenger Becky Greenwald out raised Congressman Tom Latham $308,452.01 to $290,812.32. There’s just one catch, Becky blew it all and has a meager $25k cash on hand and owes her consultant $11k of that.
This supports what I wrote about yesterday. The Greenwald campaign knew when the DCCC was going to be polling in the district and went up heavy on TV to artificially inflate their numbers in hopes that the DCCC would dump a bunch of money in her race. It worked, the DCCC has put the 4th District race as a target, but with the news that Greenwald is broke and the fact that Latham is pounding her on TV and Radio don’t be surprised to see the DCCC scale back or move to more fertile ground.
I guess we should call her Becky Bailout. She would have voted to use your tax dollars to reward the greed on Wall Street, and she has to rely on the DCCC to bailout her Congressional campaign. Sounds like a classic liberal to me.
