Joe Spector at the D&C has Louise’s first fundraising appeal. Here’s her first take on Maggie Brooks:
Republican Maggie Brooks has made it clear – that she won’t stand up for what counts in Western New York instead she’ll be more of the same refusing to break ties from the same Washington Republicans who have tried to shut down the government, trample on women’s rights and end Medicare as we know it.
Louise had $362K on hand as of the end of last year, which is the last reporting period posted by the FEC. That’s not much for a sitting Member of Congress, mainly because this district hasn’t had a contested election in recent memory. Brooks said she has to raise $2 million, which I think is a reasonable guess at what a modern Congressional campaign costs.
