Public Campaign Action Fund is featured in this NKY.com article about groups expressing their displeasure with Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) job performance. The article mentions our efforts to hold him accountable for doing favors for his biggest campaign contributors.
It appears we'll have lots of company in Kentucky when it comes to questioning McConnell's willingness to represent the best interests of his constituents in terms of both his ties to big donors and his position on the Iraq War:
Public Campaign Action Fund, a self-described campaign-finance watchdog group, has criticized McConnell's fundraising and believes he is vulnerable to a challenge next year.
"McConnell has said he will need to raise $15 million to run next year," said David Donnelly, the group's national campaigns director. "He's either greedy or sensing vulnerability."
Oh, and style points for McConnell's chief of staff, Billy Piper, for this gem of a quote: "Running against McConnell is like going to the dentist without Novocain." Because whenever possible, it's a good idea to associate your candidate with sadistic dentistry.
