Mike Huckabee targets DiFi in fundraising e-mail

Former 2008 Republican presidential primary candidate Mike Huckabee, who’s reportedly mulling a 2012 presidential bid, targeted U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., in a fundraising e-mail today.

The former Arkansas governor’s Huck PAC committee sent out an e-mail soliciting donations for its Stop Senate Democrats Fund:

California needs a conservative United States Senator. Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein has been in Washington too long and it appears she’s stopped listening to California voters – after all, you didn’t want bailouts, you didn’t want the stimulus package and you sure didn’t want Obamacare. Thanks to elected officials like Senator Feinstein you got bailouts, you got the stimulus and you got Obamacare.

Senator Feinstein like all of the Democrats up for re-election in 2012 is a large reason our nation is going bankrupt. Sadly last week, when given a chance to begin to redeem poor legislative choices, Senator Feinstein voted AGAINST the repeal of Obamacare.

Huck PAC is preparing to help conservatives win the California Senate seat and defeat other vulnerable Democrat Senators across the nation. We are asking 100 California supporters to donate this week towards this goal. Will you make a donation of $5 or more to stop Senator Feinstein and the budget-busting Democrats in Washington?
