NRCC Robocalling Skelton

The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) launched end-of-the-year robocalls Tuesday targeting 4th District Democrat Ike Skelton.

"Somehow, Ike Skelton still hasn’t gotten the message that Americans have had enough of his party’s agenda of higher taxes, more government takeovers and fewer jobs," said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain.

The script of the call notes Missouri's 9.5 percent unemployment rate and Skelton's vote for the economic stimulus package.

"Hello, I’m calling on behalf of the NRCC with an end of year action alert about Congressman Ike Skelton. Ike Skelton has been in congress for over 33 years and has lost touch with what Missouri workers are going through. Unemployment in Missouri is 9.5% but Ike Skelton spent 2009 helping liberal Speaker Nancy Pelosi push a massive $787 billion pork-laden spending bill he called a ‘stimulus’ but that has not helped the Missouri economy. To make matters worse Skelton voted for the liberal cap-and-trade bill that will increase energy costs for Missouri families at the worst time. Call Ike Skelton at 573-635-3499 and tell him your New Year’s resolution is to watch his votes in 2010 to make sure he is voting for Missouri workers, not the liberal agenda of the Democrat party leaders in Washington. Paid for by the National Republican Congressional Committee and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee. 202-479-7000."

Sen. Bill Stouffer and Vicky Hartzler appear to be the two top Republicans vying to challenge Skelton.
