You gotta hand it to the Lidster, she's good for a laugh, even on her worst and most offensive days. Have you seen the news that she wants the mean old Democrats not to spend money against her in the general election?
One of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole's top campaign advisors says he has asked the state and national Republican parties, as well as the National Republican Senatorial Committee, to steer clear of advertising in North Carolina's U.S. Senate race. And he's calling on Jerry Meek, chairman of the N.C. Democratic Party, to do likewise with his Democratic counterparts.
"You can agree to not run advertising targeting Senator Dole during the 2008 election cycle as well as encourage your Senate nominee and national parties to abstain from third party advertisements," Mark Stephens, Dole's chief campaign strategist, said in a letter today to Meek.
Surprise, surprise. After her disastrous tenure has the head of the NRSC, which is sucking wind in comparison to the Democratic committee, it's no wonder she wants to keep national money from the airwaves in North Carolina. Neal or Hagan will need all the support they can get from the purse-string holders in DC. Some campaign stunts are so transparent as to be laughable. This is one of them.
Got any advice for Jerry on this one?
