Best not have any skeletons in your closet if you wanna win.
This Patrick Murphy cat, the Democrat Nancy Pelosi put up against West this year, just found that out.
This. Just. Happened.
You guys seen an attack ad that tough, ever? Me neither.
UPDATE: MacAoidh sent me this – it’s from the Hot Air writeup on the West spot…
Col. Allen West leads Democrat Patrick Murphy by 11 points in the latest polling on Florida’s 18th Congressional District, 52-41. The poll was commissioned by West, and shows progress over a Murphy-commissioned poll from August, which showed the race statistically tied. The poll has a 4.9 percent margin of error.
West is also leading his opponent in ad buys, tripling Murphy’s allotment, according to the Roll Call:
If West’s poll is true it’s good news, because I’m gettin’ a bunch of this type stuff in my e-mail box…
Congressman Allen West is under incredible attack. Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and George Soros are all fighting tooth and nail to defeat this conservative superstar.
We need to fight back.
This race is going to be incredibly close. Allen West needs all the help he can get.
Allen West’s liberal opponent, Patrick Murphy, has the momentum and has drawn even with West in the polls.
We need to save Allen West.
Our goal is to raise $43,671 over the next seventy-two hours to pay for our first wave of ads.
Murphy has raised an incredible $500,000 in the latest quarter. He just released his first negative ad attacking Congressman West.
The Conservative StrikeForce PAC must get into this fight right away!
I thought those fundraisers were a little over the top, frankly. But you never know – there’s no doubt the lefties are throwin’ a ton of jack into the race. They want West outta Congress as bad as all get-out.
But against that ad? Ferget it.
