The 2012 Election: Why are Republicans so nasty?

James Ottavio,
We recently learned that when our opponent, Tom Smith, was out campaigning to win the primary this spring and was asked about Bob Casey, he remarked,“We will hang him.”

It’s bad enough when politicians try to pit us against one another, but this kind of rhetoric goes so far over the line, it’s really unbelievable. To move our Commonwealth forward we need to elect leaders who will put the people of Pennsylvania before partisan politics and reject Tea Party extremism. And that’s why we need to send Bob Casey back to the US Senate this November.

It’s not going to be easy. Tom Smith has already spent $5 million from his personal fortune, and just this week we learned he’s reaching back into his deep pockets to write another massive check to his campaign. Smith’s aiming to spend $20 million to defeat Bob, but that’s just the beginning. Thanks to the Citizens United ruling, Karl Rove and his special interest allies can spend unlimited sums of money to attack Bob. It’s going to take a massive grassroots effort to fight back and get our message out.

Click here to make a contribution before our FEC deadline on June 30th and help us reach our goal of $40,000 so that Bob has the resources to spread his positive message across the Commonwealth. Just $5 can make a big difference. 

Ever since the Tea Party was swept into Congress in 2010, we’ve seen more partisan politics and gridlock than ever – and Tom Smith is offering more of the same.

Bob Casey has a different approach. He’s working to find common ground and get things done -- because that’s the only way we’re going to be able to create jobs and grow the economy. But we’re in for a tough fight. On top of the outside spending, the extreme Tea Party Express PAC has just set a goal to raise $100,000 to help fund Smith’s campaign.

Thanks so much for your support.
