Blunt Plans to ROMP

From Talking Point Memo:

Rep. Roy Blunt sent out a press release today touting a new fundraising effort on behalf of Republican Congressional candidates. The program has this rather optimistic title: Regain Our Majority Program (ROMP) II.

But in the same release, it also contains a list of all the GOP House candidates that will benefit from this program designed to regain the GOP's majority.

ROMP will benefit the following Members and candidates:
Shelley Moore Capito (WV-2)
Lincoln Diaz-Balart (FL-21)
Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25)
Phil English (PA-3)
Tom Feeney (FL-24)
Chris Hackett (PA-10)
Pete Olson (TX-22)
Steve Stivers (OH-15)

"Get this, writes TPM. "Only two of the names on this list are challengers running to unseat House Dems -- Hackett and Olsen. The rest are incumbents, with the exception of Stivers, who's running for an open GOP-held seat."
