Both parties use trackers as a component of series modern-day political campaigns, but former Obama White House staffer Andy Kim – a policy wonk mounting his first bid for office – might not know that.
“Our opponent Tom MacArthur is already sending operatives to record Andy at our events,” said Kim campaign manager Zack Carroll in a fundraising appeal. “This is a common Republican tactic, but it usually doesn’t start this early.”
Kim is also using a report that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s super PAC has a field office in his district as a fundraising opportunity.
“Despite everything they are throwing at us, we’re committed to running a principled, grassroots campaign — fueled by PEOPLE, not corporate PACs,” Carroll said.
