Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner will be in Minnesota on August 30th to campaign for Randy Demmer, a Republican running for Congress in Minnesota's 1st District. Demmer's campaign manager Jason Flohrs said Boehner will hold at least a fundraiser and a possible public event for Demmer.
"We always thought that we had a good chance of winning this seat back," Flohrs said. "To have some national recognition of that is just great."
Demmer is challenging DFL Rep. Tim Walz in Minnesota's 1st District. The two have been campaigning aggressively in one of the more competitive congressional races in Minnesota this year.
Update: I'm addiing comments from Walz' campaign.
"It's a baliout of a failing campaign," Walz campaign manager Richard Carlbom said. "Demmer has struggled to get his campaign going. It's a bailout to save what remnants of a campaign Demmer has left."
To our dem/lib friends: Barney Frank now says Fannie and Freddie should be dissolved...does not the fact that the ringmaster of home finance disasters saying this mean something to you. I find it not only pathetic but ironic And remember if you will that Nancy P. and Harry R. have guided the Congress and Senate since 2006. So if you want to speak about misdoings lately ,I say there are at least a few others besides GWB and the Repubs to examine. At least the Repubs have a working knowledge of how things work and how to get things moving....70 days and counting.
