McMorris Rodgers is campaigning like she has a contest and a competitive one at that.
In addition to the strong fundraising numbers, she has held multiple town halls: four alone during the last Congressional recess, for a total of 38 since August 2013, according to her campaign.
The Congressional Leadership Fund, a powerful GOP super PAC supported by Ryan, has opened an office in the district to aide McMorris Rodgers.
The non-partisan Cook Report recently changed the rating of the race from a solid Republican seat to a lean Republican seat. It may sound like a small change but it sent waves through the political community given the district’s previous deep red ranking.
“They’re either very prepared or very scared or both,” Ridout said of McMorris Rodgers’ campaign.
Aww, poor baby.
