DSCC Worried about Jennifer Bunner and Her Ugly Bus
From Erin McPike in the National Journal:
Two sources say the DSCC has been calling around to Ohio TV stations asking for air time in advance of the May 4 primary between Sec/State Jennifer Brunner and LG Lee Fisher.
According to Brunner, who spoke with Hotline OnCall late last year, DSCC Chair Bob Menendez told her he would spend money against a primary candidate with little campaign cash. Menendez has not been shy about his support for Fisher over Brunner.
Fisher has an ad airing in some OH markets but is running low on cash. While favored, he’s still running neck-and-neck with Brunner, who’s kept the contest more competitive than Beltway strategists would like.
While Brunner does not have backing from EMILY’s List, she’s campaigning heavily on OH’s history of never electing a woman to a SEN or GOV seat, hoping to rally the support of female voters. But Fisher’s team believes the establishment — both inside OH and in DC — will rally to his cause and help put him over the top. It appears that at least the latter may come to fruition.
Democrats are scared to death of a candidate who can’t even afford to run TV ads, and are ready to push hard these last few days to someone who once LOST TO GOVERNOR BOB TAFT.
