Snyder imperiled

Posted By on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 12:19 PM

National Republican propaganda operations are pushing a line about U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder's vulnerability. Today, they have some material to send around  in a National Journal article listing the 2nd District as among the 20 most in danger of switching parties in 2010. Reasons offered: The district is conservative, Snyder doesn't raise money year-round and one Republican opponent, Tim Griffin, has already raised $130,000.

Bud Cummins, Phil Wyrick, Mark Stodola, etc., could offer National Journal a little personal testimony about making assumptions based on either Snyder's voting record or his fund-raising philosophy.He's weathered seven congressional elections so far.

There's also this. The folks who were thick with Griffin in his D.C. oppo research days might be out of touch with Arkansas. As coincidence would have it, a dedicated Republican political operator happened to mention to me this morning that he wasn't sure Griffin would win the REPUBLICAN PRIMARY. Watch out, he said, for restaurant owner and former talk show hot head Scott Wallace. Wallace is well-known and has been a resident of Little Rock for many years. Griffin's a newcomer, not to mention a newcomer wearing a Karl Rove Fan Club T-shirt. (Legend on back: See Me About Voter Cages.)
