The Phoenix Business Journal observes that three of Sarah Palin's targeted "Take Back the 20" Congressional seats are currently held by Arizona Democrats:
Palin is urging her supporters to get behind David Schweikert, Paul Gosar and Jesse Kelly in their bids against U.S. Reps. Harry Mitchell of Tempe, Ann Kirkpatrick of Flagstaff and Gabrielle Giffords of Tucson.The Journal notes that the DCCC, in response, is asking Democrats to contribute to candidates in the districts targeted by the governor.
Palin has targeted 20 races nationwide where she wants to help Republican challengers.
The three Arizona races could be indicators of how well Republicans are doing nationally in a year when Democrats and President Barack Obama could face voters’ wrath over the economy and housing. Real Clear Politics lists the trio of Arizona contests as toss-ups in November.
Good. Keep 'em on defense, and make 'em spend their money there.
