It’s a new year, but the same old Jim Matheson.
Matheson is up to his same old tricks – trying to hide his support from national Democrats.
Despite symbolically voting against making Nancy Pelosi Speaker today, Matheson and Pelosi were close as could be during his last campaign. The former Speaker pumped $14,000 into Matheson’s 2012 reelection bid.
That’s right: $14,000!!
Not only that, but Matheson has already voted for Pelosi when it mattered most: Four times in fact. In 2009, 2007, 2005 and 2003.
NRCC COMMENT: “Jim Matheson can’t fool Utah families anymore. His loyalties to Nancy Pelosi run deep. Why else would she have funneled $14,000 into Matheson’s campaign coffers.” – NRCC Spokesman Daniel Scarpinato
P.S. – Today the NRCC invited Jim Matheson to retire before Utah voters kick him out in 2014. View the brochure here.
