With Tom DeLay in political exile, the race against Pryce – the GOP’s deputy whip and fourth-ranking member – represents the Democrats’ best chance to make Republicans pay for the party’s rampant corruption and unquestioning support of the president’s far-right agenda.
Pryce not only spearheaded Bush’s effort to privatize Social Security, she also benefited from at least ten fund-raisers hosted by disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
“More than any other seat in the nation, this race offers an opportunity to send George W. Bush a message,” says Kilroy, who has a track record of winning in the district. “Deborah Pryce is not just a foot soldier – she’s a general who has rubberstamped every bad idea to come out of the administration for the last six years.”
