Running for a/the House
Posted by John Hood at 08:38 AM
Democratic nominee Anne Fischer has told reporters that she is staying in the 10th Congressional District race against Patrick McHenry despite the fact that, due to financial problems, she has just lost her home to foreclosure. In true political-spin fashion, however, Fischer is portraying the development as a plus:
"I'm moving forward," said the 58-year-old Fischer, who describes herself as a part-time stress release facilitator. She said she is living with friends. "I'm totally focused. It will help me serve the district better. I have fewer responsibilities on the home front, basically, and terrific supporters that are helping me out."
A suggestion for a campaign theme: “Please vote for Anne Fischer — she really needs a House.”
