A Confusing Tarp Maze in Mo. Races
An ad blitz meant to boost Robin Carnahan’s Senate aspirations may be complicating the efforts of her brother’s reelection in the House.
The ad gave the Republican challenger, who is trying to flip the deep-blue district once held by Rep. Dick Gephardt, an opening too seamless to resist.
“Even the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is criticizing Congressman Carnahan!” read a release from the Martin campaign Monday. “We can only assume its criticism includes all Democrats since, the bill passed largely due to the support of Democrats. When Carnahan’s own party comes out in such a strong, critical and public manner against him — it speaks volumes.”
