What Harry Mitchell’s (Lack-of) Numbers tell us in AZ-5

Schweikert steadily posts higher 48-hour amounts than Mitchell, almost doubling the incumbent Democrats fundraising numbers
(Scottsdale, AZ) In the first week of FEC 48-hour disclosure reports, Republican challenger David Schweikert posts consistently higher fundraising numbers than incumbent Democrat Harry Mitchell.
“I think it’s because people understand where this government is trying to take us. We have seen serial bailouts, taxpayer stimulus that has wasted billions but not created jobs, the nationalization of whole industries and legislation like card check which puts union bosses before workers,” commented Schweikert campaign manager Oliver Schwab.
“The extreme one-party rule agenda of this President and Congress is driving our country toward the abyss of a European style debt crisis.  It has go to stop!” said Schwab.
In his October 19, 2010 filing, Mitchell reported a $2,000 contribution from struggling incumbent Tucson Democrat Gabby Gifford’s campaign. “When Democrats are having to bail each other out across county lines in Arizona, that tells you just about everything you need to know about how much trouble Mitchell is in,” continued Schwab.
“The Obama-Pelosi agenda, which Congressman Mitchell has vote in lockstep to support, is way outside the mainstream of what the American people find acceptable.”
David Schweikert heads into the final two weeks before the election with a very strong position to be able to continue to deliver his message to the voters of the 5th District.
Schweikert has continually outraised incumbent Mitchell, the Arizona Republic has endorsed Schweikert over Mitchell, and key Democrats are joining Schweikert’s team to bring limited government and fiscal responsibility to the forefront of the national agenda.
