Quick — what do “Mean Jean” Schmidt (R-OH), Michelle Bachman (R-MN), House whip Eric Cantor (R-VA)Â and Rep. John Campbell (R-Newport Beach) all have in common?Â Ok, besides that they’re a little nuts with things like Obama’s Kenyan Birth Certificate.
All four made Politico’s list of controversial House Republicans considered vulnerable by a new PAC called Stand Up America, according to this story in Politico.com.
From the story: “The PAC is being run by Democratic consultant Aaron Ament, who worked on Hillary Clintonâ€™s presidential team as an online adviser, and Mark Longabaugh, who headed an independent expenditure that helped defeat former GOP Rep. Marilyn Musgrave last year.
â€œMichele Bachmann questions the patriotism of the President and First Lady and advocates armed sedition against her own government; John Campbell introduces legislation to inflame “birther” crackpots; Eric Cantor intentionally misrepresents facts in House debate; and Jean Schmidt questions the patriotism a Vietnam veteran and fellow colleague in the House,â€
“The words and actions of these members of Congress are outside the bounds of decent debate and we intend to stand up and defeat them at the ballot box.â€
This is fantastic news for Irvine City Council member Beth Krom who is on track to raise more money in CD-48 than any previous Democratic challenger.
