Dueling political action committees

The Republican Main Street Partnership Political Action Committee and Club for Growth are going neck and neck in the race to raise money for the two Republican candidates for Congress.
Main Street backs Schwarz and has raised $250,000 for his re-election bid.
Club for Growth brought in $79,000 for Tim Walberg of Tipton during the first three months of the year, according to a report in the Lansing State Journal.
The anti-tax group also launched the website, www.joeschwarzisaliberal.com/.
Both dueling political action committees are based in Washington, D.C., with support coming in from around the country.
In other election news, Schwarz now has a real time election countdown clock on his homepage.

UPDATE 4-27:
Joe Schwarz will be the beneficiary of a Capitol Hill fundraiser Thursday, April 27 featuring Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Roll Call newspaper reported April 25.
Schwarz led McCain's failed 2000 bid for president.
McCain, in turn, made two stops in the 7th District in the summer of 2004, helping boost media exposure for Schwarz as he won a narrow six-man GOP primary.

I think you may have forgotten a one in Walberg's CFG campaign contribution tally.

July...That's when I predict Walberg will get his first contribution from an actual voter in the 7th District.

What a joke his entire candidacy is. He's entirely financed by a bunch of rich, do-nothings from all over the county. This is what's wrong with the entire 527 debacle. If elected who will he consult for decisions regarding the 7th? Rest assured, it won't be us.
