Bruce Braley’s Crocodile Tears

With Congressman Bruce Braley putting out a memo where he complains about outside money, it’s worth noting that from September 1st until Election Day, Braley and his Beltway allies will outspend the GOP by over $2.4 million.

If you’re reporting on this news then below is a statement and research from the Republican Party of Iowa:

“Congressman Braley is crying crocodile tears about outside money, but it’s Democrats that are set to outspend Republicans by $2 million. With environmental extremist Tom Steyer and other DC special interests bankrolling Braley’s campaign, it’s worth wondering what do these groups want in return from Congressman Braley?” – Republican Party of Iowa spokesman Jahan Wilcox.
