A Trend for the GOP?

More

News broke over the weekend that former GOP Rep. Rob Simmons will challenge Sen. Chris Dodd (D) in Connecticut in 2010, and, with Dodd facing criticism for his allegedly shady/preferential mortgage treatment from Countrywide, that controversy looks to figure prominently in the campaign. This now poses the question: will painting Democrats as fatcats become a trend for the GOP? In New York's 20th district special election, the NRCC has blasted venture capitalist Scott Murphy repeatedly for approving bonuses, and the GOP's messaging in Connecticut could gain a national podium if, as a recent Quinnipiac poll indicates, it's going to be a nail-biter. Just a thought.
