The Local Values blog is talking about Congressman Chris Carney’s launch of a Republicans for Carney committee. Local Values goes through the contribution history of some of these “republicans” that are supporting Chris Carney and details their participation in Democratic party politics. Specifically, they point out that some of the “republicans” in question have contributed to Obama, Ed Rendell, Bob Casey, and County Democratic Committees.
These opposing party committees are very common in elections. Usually, a candidate tries to find an otherwise loyal party person who hopefully is also a high profile opposing party person and win their support publicly.
