Give the DFL an A+ for persistence in sticking with their discredited anti-Chip Cravaack chanting points. Yesterday, Minnesota Progressive Project kept the drumbeat going with this post. Here’s the heart of their chanting points:
Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN/NH) has a problem. It all began when he campaigned against Jim Oberstar as out of touch with his district. He claimed that Oberstar actually lived in the Maryland suburbs of DC. He further claimed that Oberstar rarely visited Minnesota. Candidates who make those sort of claims better make themselves very available to their constituents and get lots of face time in their districts.
As everyone knows, Cravaack moved his family to New Hampshire after he beat Oberstar.
Actually, Chip moved his family to New Hampshire as a result of a medical emergency. The ‘convenient thing’ for the DFL is that they aren’t interested in reality. They’re only interested in playing mindless gotcha games. (Apparently, they don’t think in terms of solutions, just gotchaisms.)
The DFL’s disinterest in the truth is apparent through this:
Cravaack won’t even verify when he’s actually been in the district. He just claims a lot and asks us to believe him.
That paragraph deserves a Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire alert. Chip’s constituents don’t have to take his word he’s staying in touch with them. They know because he’s held 27 townhall meetings in the district thus far.
That’s more open-to-the-public townhall meetings than Sen. Klobuchar, Sen. Franken and Jim Oberstar held the last 5 years combined.
The DFL will attempt to defeat Chip by repeating their mindless chanting points. If that’s all they’ve got in their CD-8 arsenal, they’re in trouble.
