According to the LJ World, Republican lawmakers are keeping the heat on Nancy Boyda for her vote to cut millions in much needed funding for our military bases in Kansas.
Does anyone else remember the hatchet job the national democrats did on Jim Ryun? They ran an ad saying he voted against a $1500 bonus for our troops (never mind that had he voted for the democrat legislation, it would have cut billions in funding for things like body armor and other soldier safety initiatives in Iraq). Nancy Boyda never once condemned that ad.
So, now that Boyda's being rightly criticized for voting to cut millions from critical support for our troops here at home, she's crying foul, saying this is a personal attack.
Stay Red Kansas suggests Boyda didn't turn down Democrat money to support her next time around, but was never even considered. We have hear (yes this is a rumor) from some reliable sources that Boyda is not winning any popularity contests in DC, but here's our question: why don't Republicans start putting pressure on her to send a letter to the national democrats and other outside groups like move on and labor unions, asking them not to spend ANY money on ads, mail, radio, etc in 2008. My bet, she won't do it.
Dedicated to the proposition that Nancy Boyda is a one termer.
