National GOP rips Powers ...

The Republican National Congressional Committee has questioned Jon Powers priorities because Powers missed a town hall meeting to go to what they say was a fundraiser in California.

Jon Powers, Democratic candidate in New York’s 26th Congressional District, and his campaign continue to avoid answering questions about his campaign contributions and why the majority of his contributions are from outside of Western New York. In fact last week Powers claimed to have the needed “hometown support.”

Now, I'm not defending Powers here. If he skipped out on a commitment, I want to know why. But I'm supposed to trust the RNCC to question ANYONE's judgment? Isn't this the same RNCC that Tom Reynolds headed? Tom Reynolds who spent the majority of his time as a congressman running around the country raising money for people? The same RNCC that is missing millions of dollars from when Tom Reynolds headed it? And they're going to question Jon Powers?
