The National Republican Congressional Committee has launched a new website against Kathy Boockvar, the Democratic challenger for PA-8 against Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R-Bucks).
The website, titled “Radical Kathy,” attacks Boockvar as a radical leftist lawyer and includes articles to support their claims. The website’s is set up with a dark background, pictures of riots at “Occupy Wall Street” and other pictures of radical leftist movements.
The launch of this website coordinates with the NRCC’s definition of Boockvar as “a radical activist lawyer on the fringe of the left.”
“Boockvar’s troubling past makes her unfit to represent the people of Bucks County,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay.
“With Washington Democrats’ big-government takeover of health care and reckless spending sprees that hamper economic recovery, Pennsylvania families don’t want a radical activist with a partisan agenda representing them in Congress.”
Boockvar Campaign manager Jon Blair said that this website is simply a distraction to Mike Fitzpatrick’s true nature and voting record.
“This is yet another blatant attempt to distract Pennsylvanians from Congressman Fitzpatrick’s record of voting the Tea Party agenda, rather than in the best interest of his constituents in Bucks and Montgomery counties. Try as he may, Congressman Fitzpatrick will not be able to hide from his actual votes to protect companies that outsource Pennsylvanian jobs, end Medicare as we know it and defund Planned Parenthood.”
The launch of this website could be seen as confirmation that Fitzpatrick and other Republicans are worried that the PA-8 seat could fall into Boockvar’s hands. Boockvar has put up a formidable fundraising effort thus far, and was deemed by PoliticsPA to be Congress’ second-most vulnerable seat in the state.
