A shot-and-chaser for John Boehner and David Jolly

in Uncategorized by

Here’s a morning shot-and-chaser about U.S House Speaker John Boehner’s relationship with Republican congressional candidate David Jolly.

SHOT: ” ‘After all that was done to help Jolly, his noncommittal statements on if he supports the speaker made Boehner advisers furious,’ said one Republican official close to Boehner’s operation according to POLITICO.

CHASER: Boehner sent out a fundraising email  to his supporters on Friday, encouraging them to back Jolly in this “highly contested” and “neck and neck” race according to Sunshine State News. Most of Boehner’s focus was against (Alex) Sink, looking to tie her to President Barack Obama and U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. … “A Republican win next week against Barack Obama next week against Barack Obama’s and Nancy Pelosi’s hand-picked candidate will help our team build momentum here in 2014,” Boehner insisted. “Don’t let the Left steal this election in its final days. This is anyone’s race.”
