One of our faithful readers in the Palmetto State thinks it’s about time to unseat John Spratt. The 14-term Democrat chairs the House Budget Committee, so he is kind of symbol of his party’s spendthrift ways. John McCain won this district handily (53-46); itincludes some of the territory where Nathanial Greene rallied the Continental Army in some of its bloodiest battles in the last year of the Revolutionary War.
By chasing Cornwallis and Tarleton out of the Carolinas, he forced their retreat to Yorktown where General Washington did his magic. So, let’s remind Mr. Spratt why so much blood was spilled in the territory he represents in the town named for that great American, patriotic Americans fighting against the tyranny of an overreaching national government. To show just how vulnerable he is, reader asks us to chime in at Public Policy Polling to have them poll this race. So follow the link and vote “for” John Spratt. But, in the case, a vote “for” means a vote for polling.
I expect that this big-spending Democrat won poll very well. And those low numbers will encourage strong Republicans to enter this race, giving Nancy Pelosi one less vote in the House.
