DCCC’s Epic Fail in Pennsylvania House Race
Mike Parrish, the DCCC’s prized candidate to run for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 6th District,just dropped out of the race. I guess he watched that Florida-13 special election unfold and didn’t like what he saw.
Now it looks like the Florida-13 fallout has left Pelosi and the DCCC with a two-time double digit loser to challenge strong Republican candidate Ryan Costello in the PA-06 open seat. OUCH!
NRCC Comment: “It’s pretty clear after last week’s special election in Florida that Democrats’ chances in 2014 are sinking faster than a boat without a hull. It seems like just yesterday that the DCCC was sending out memos touting Mike Parrish’s candidacy and flying Nancy Pelosi in to fundraise for him. Just a few weeks later, however, Parrish has seen first-hand how difficult it is running straight into the massive headwinds caused by Obamacare. It’s certainly understandable that he would want to jump ship.” – NRCC Spokesman Ian Prior
