This is what it’s like to be in a position of healthy finances and a strong party identity:  screwing with the other side regarding their intra-party battles.

Democrats are stirring it up in the raging family feud of a GOP primary in South Jersey’s Third Congressional District.

The state Democratic Committee financed a brochure, which began arriving in Republican households in Burlington County yesterday. It attacks candidate Chris Myers of Medford, sending a signal that Democrats are picking a preferred opponent for the fall – Ocean County Freeholder Jack Kelly.

Rather than sitting back in our foxholes, patiently waiting for the inevitable attacks to be lobbed our way, we’re able to take the fight and the PR battle to them.
Yes, indeed, more like this, please:

While Democrats readily took credit for the attack piece, spokesman Rich McGrath said Myers “has such a failed record, we acted to communicate just some of those facts with the voters because they have a right to know.

Happy to be here…just wanna help the team.

Democrats are playing hard for this seat. Their candidate, state Sen. John Adler (D., Camden), has raised over $1 million for his race and has no primary opponent in the contest to succeed retiring Congressman Jim Saxton, a Republican.

Adler took the early support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which believes that the demographics have changed enough in this traditionally Republican district that Adler can win.

As Republicans have been wrangling, Adler has been quietly trying to build up himself among voters. The district includes his home of Cherry Hill and runs through Burlington and Ocean Counties.

Yes, that’s right Rich.  “The voters…have a right to know” these guys are battling over who can hate brown people harder, too:

So far in this race, Myers and Kelly agree on most issues and have attacked each other’s character.

On the one issue they do disagree on – building a fence between the United States and Mexico – Kelly found a way to attack Myers’ character.

Kelly wants to build the fence. Myers says because illegal immigrants will find a way under or around the fence, there should be a high-tech monitoring system to keep an eye on the border.

Kelly says Myers is really trying to favor his employer, Lockheed Martin, which developed a monitoring system. Myers flatly denied that and adds that Boeing Co. – and not Lockheed Martin – got the monitoring system contract.

To push the immigration issue even further, Kelly announced yesterday that his hard line on illegal immigration earned him the endorsement of Jim Gilchrist, founder of the sometimes controversial civilian border patrol group called the Minuteman Project.

Sounds like it’s already time for another mailer!
