HULSHOF'S HEAVY ARTILLERY
G.O.P. Congressional Delegation Steps Up With Unprecedented Response To Defend Hulshof Against Steelman's Ad . . .
SEN. BOND, REPS. BLUNT, EMERSON, AKIN, GRAVES SIGN STATEMENT:
"It is disappointing that our fellow Republican, Sarah Steelman, would attack the good work of Missouri's Republican representatives in Washington, D.C. It is not helpful to take votes out of context, distort interest group ratings and cast aspersions on our motives at a time when we, along with Kenny Hulshof, are doing everything possible to thwart the extreme agendas of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Here are the facts. Kenny Hulshof has a 95% rating from the Americans for Tax Reform, a 95% lifetime rating from the US Chamber of Commerce, a 94% rating from Eagle Forum and an 89% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union. Suggesting that Kenny Hulshof is anything but an effective and committed conservative leader is wrong, misleading and a disservice to voters. The people of Missouri deserve better."
"The Congressman invited us to compare Sarah’s record to his and that is what we’ve done. Missourians are fed up with wasteful, pork barrel spending on projects like the Bridge to Nowhere. Congressman Hulshof had the opportunity to be a leader and eliminate wasteful projects but he failed," said Steelman spokesperson Spence Jackson.
