Sure enough, the Evan Feinberg camp is pointing to the Tea Party's vanquishing of a GOP incumbent in Cincinnati we talked about yesterday, and using it to try to fundraise against incumbent Tim Murphy.
"Make no mistake: Tim Murphy is more vulnerable than Jean Schmidt ever was, and my campaign is going to deliver him a similar fate this April 24... with your help," it says.
A SuperPAC that worked against Schmidt is eying the 18th District race for independent expenditures against Murphy too, reports PoliticsPa.
Full Feinberg camp pitch after the jump:
I am very happy to write to you about the resounding success of a Tea Party conservative, Army Reserve Major Brad Wenstrup, who defeated incumbent Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) in Ohio's Super Tuesday Primary election. Wenstrup's victory is just another sign that the 2010 wave of conservative success has continued into 2012.
Make no mistake: Tim Murphy is more vulnerable than Jean Schmidt ever was, and my campaign is going to deliver him a similar fate this April 24... with your help.
Tim Murphy has been in Washington longer and done even more to prioritize his own interests than Jean Schmidt. Both have serious ethics allegations attached to their records. And Tim Murphy's spending record makes Jean Schmidt look frugal.
It's no wonder why the Campaign for Primary Accountability, a new SuperPAC receiving part of the credit for unseating Rep. Schmidt, now has its sights on Tim Murphy. With $1.6 million in the bank, their spokesman Curtis Ellis recently told PoliticsPA: "We will be doing independent expenditures in PA-18... Our survey research shows [Murphy] has very high unfavorable ratings and the voters are ready for someone else to represent them in Washington."
Ellis concluded, "We have the resources and are committed to spending what it takes to get our message out and make a difference."
With influential conservative leaders like Sen. Tom Coburn and Sen. Rand Paul endorsing my candidacy, bolstered by support from local job creators and grassroots organizations, my campaign is gaining steam quickly. In addition to the Campaign for Primary Accountability, the Club for Growth has already spent over $125,000 on television advertisements and the influential FreedomWorks has endorsed my candidacy.
Victory is within sight, but I need your help. Please go to my website, evanfeinberg.com to donate $100, $50, or even $10. Our Super Tuesday, the day we send Tim Murphy packing and return fiscal accountability to Washington D.C., is April 24.
