From Georgia Unfiltered:
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) must smell a winner with its attempt to link 8th district Congressman Jim Marshall with embattled New York Democrat Charlie Rangel.
The 8th Congressional District race is officially a national issue.
The National Republican Congressional Committee began targeting U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall, D-Macon, this week with a series of telephone calls “with an important message about corruption in Washington.” The Republicans accused Marshall of taking $37,000 in campaign money from U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel, who faces House ethics charges.
The move presumably helps the campaign of Austin Scott of Ashburn, the Republican nominee for the seat. Scott raised more money than Marshall in the latest three-month reporting period, but Marshall had a significantly larger war chest.
