Poll fallout: Klein camp calls West a Palin puppet, West camp sees Klein ‘desperation’by George Bennett | April 26th, 2010
“Voters in Florida’s 22nd congressional district will have the opportunity to compare Congressman Ron Klein’s record of fighting to protect Medicare and Social Security, creating Florida jobs, and fighting for veterans, to the extreme rhetoric and positions of Allen West and his out-of-state puppet masters like Sarah Palin,” said Klein campaign spokeswoman Sarah Rothschild.
“While Allen West is focused on a poll for the November election, Congressman Ron Klein is working every day to stimulate the economy and on bipartisan solutions that will protect Florida homeowners, crack down on Medicare fraud and impose tougher sanctions on the rogue regime in Iran.”
West campaign manager Josh Grodin offered this take when the poll was released:
“This survey shows that how out of touch the politics practiced and preached by Ron Klein in Washington have become with the citizens of Florida’s 22nd Congressional District. He is clearly in trouble, so I’d be expecting desperation to become an overall theme of his campaign.”
