If the 20th race is not close then why is Laura Bush on her way here?
And why is Sweeney among 7 incumbents with a "real need for additional resources" according to an NRCC event invitation?
Bowling for Republicans
Republicans in Washington were urged to take time off work from 4 to 6 p.m. last Wednesday and go to the Lucky Strike Bowling Alley in an unusual fundraiser for seven GOP House members in need of late campaign money.
The National Republican Congressional Committee called the event BOMP (Bowling for Our Majority Program). The beneficiaries were Reps. Steve Chabot of Ohio, Thelma Drake of Virginia, Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska, J.D. Hayworth of Arizona, Marilyn Musgrave of Colorado, John Sweeney of New York and Curt Weldon of Pennsylvania.
The solicitation for BOMP asserted that the seven incumbents "all have a real need for additional resources in the last couple of months before the election." (source)
