DSCC Unveils New Anti-Blunt "Suits" Site

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) released a new website Wednesday targeting Congressman Roy Blunt and the Missouri Republicans who have endorsed his U.S. Senate bid.

The DSCC site asks visitors to "sign up and print out your Missouri Suits baseball card."

The site features pictures of "The Suits": Roy Blunt, Jim Talent, Sen. Kit Bond and former Attorney General John Ashcroft.

Check out the site HERE.

"Collectively, the figures in this group have decades of insider experience in Washington DC, whether it was as the chief legal mind in George Bush’s Administration, a Senator who marched lock-step with Bush-Cheney for six long years, or a Senator who has been voting the wrong way since the Reagan Administration," reads a release from the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

"Birds of a feather flock together," said DSCC communications director Eric Schultz. "Roy Blunt is a creature of Washington, that’s where he feels most comfortable. But Missourians are looking for change and Jim Talent, Kit Bond, John Ashcroft are not the faces of the future. They embody the old ways of Washington and that’s why they’re standing with their leader Roy Blunt," Schultz said.

Earlier this year, former state treasurer Sarah Steelman labeled Blunt as another "white guy in a suit."

Missouri Republican Party responds:

"Robin Carnahan and the national Democrats want to talk about clothes when our country is facing very serious challenges like a weak economy and the Carnahan-backed national energy tax," said MOGOP Executive Director Lloyd Smith.
