Tea Party Express Reducing Support of Christine O'Donnell

This article is mostly about bigger-money groups and donors not supporting her, citing viability concerns, but I was grabbed by this:

Even the Tea Party Express, the Sacramento-based national organization that launched a well-financed, late-stage advertising campaign which helped O'Donnell win her primary race, has dialed back its financial support for her.

Documents filed with the Federal Election Commission show that between O'Donnell's September 14 primary victory and mid-October, the Tea Party Express paid for around $11,000 in e-mail blasts and radio ads supporting her. By comparison, records show the group spent more than $64,000 in support of Angle during that period. (Tea Party Express representatives did not respond to messages requesting comment.)

You know, when the Tea Party Express began hitting me with emails telling me to get behind O'Donnell, I wrote to them: "Don't do this." After a bit of argument (friendly) about it, I even got rude: "Do you really need to fundraise [and take a skim from that fundraising; that's how these groups pay the bills] this badly?"

After being called on that for obnoxiousness rudeness, I apologized.

Point is, I argued. Don't do this.

And now they're cutting off her funding, too.

Swell.


O'Donnell: The "I'm Not A Witch" Ad Didn't Work Like We'd Planned: I thought it was a good idea for an ad, actually, so this isn't me all gloatey. Other people said "Horrible ad!" and I disagreed with them.

I think at the end of the day if you have a stack of problems a mile high there's really not a "good" way to deal with them, if by "good" you mean "make them go away." If it wasn't the witch thing it would be the lawsuit thing.
