    Dem SuperPAC targeting “Tea Party 10”

    Dem SuperPAC targeting “Tea Party 10”

    A Democratic SuperPAC just made my job of identifying House members to support as part of Operation Counterweight a whole lot easier.

    The new SuperPAC will target 10 Tea Party congressmen, six of whom have been identified with four to be named, via HuffPo (h/t @JazzShaw):

    A liberal super PAC is set Monday to launch what it is billing as a multimillion dollar campaign to “Take Down the Tea Party Ten.”

    The effort by the progressive outfit CREDO aims to use the new big-spending super PAC model, which can accept unlimited donations, to back extensive local organizing and “education” aimed at defeating 10 members of Congress seen by the left as the worst of the worst….

    The first six lawmakers targeted by the group are Reps. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.), Steve King (R-Iowa), Allen West (R-Fla), Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), Frank Guinta (R-N.H.), and Chip Cravaack (R-Minn.). Four more will be chosen by CREDO’s members.

    Although super PACs can take unlimited donations, the group is boasting that, with 11,000 donors, it is much more a grassroots organization.

    Allen West in particular faces a firestorm.  He’s being put in a very weak position because of redistricting about to be passed by Florida Republicans, he always has been a target for the left, and now he will have a SuperPAC devoted to taking him out.

    You can get links on how to support West at the Focus Page.

    “A Democratic SuperPAC just made my job of identifying House members to support as part of Operation Counterweight a whole lot easier.”

    Indeed. Makes it easier for us to know who to send checks too. I had already contributed to Steve King (via Club for Growth) and have sent many checks to Allen West. Now I know some other good people!

    Thanks CREDO!!

    And thanks to you, Professor. Keep up the fight.
