Sweet: Murtha Resorts to Begging

Sphere: Related Content

I wouldn't count on much from your "racist" and "redneck" constituents:

Veteran Democratic Rep. John Murtha (Pa.) has sent out a last-minute plea for $1 million to save his hotly contested seat, endangered by his own remarks describing his district as racist.

In an e-mail sent to potential donors, Murtha’s campaign asked his supporters to maximize all campaign contributions.

“We need to raise another $1 million to compete,” his campaign fundraiser Susan O’Neill wrote in the e-mail obtained by The Hill. “We need money immediately.”

O’Neill blamed Republicans from outside Pennsylvania for Murtha’s problems. Polls show Murtha, running for his 18th term, ahead of his GOP opponent by just a few percentage points.
What's amusing is it is Democrats from outside Pennsylvania that Murtha is appealing to for help. GOP supporters outside PA = Bad. Dem supporters outside PA = Good. See, it's easy.
