Cooper, Fincher Top National Partisan Targets in TN

Blast emails sent by political party committees accuse Democratic Rep. Jim Cooper of Nashville of supporting “job-destroying policies” and Republican Rep. Stephen Fincher of Frog Jump of accepting “tainted” campaign cash, reports The Tennessean.
Since mid-September, the National Republican Congressional Committee has sent at least six emails to reporters and fundraisers targeting Cooper, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has sent at least 10 blasting Fincher.
A handful of DCCC emails also target Republican Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Jasper. The emails take aim at lawmakers considered vulnerable in the 2012 election.
“Fincher has always been one of our top targets,” said Adam Hodge, a spokesman for the DCCC. “I think it’s just a race we can win.”
Andrea Bozek, a spokeswoman for the NRCC, said the same of Cooper. He and other fiscally conservative Blue Dog Democrats were decimated in last November’s election, and that trend probably will continue in 2012, she said.
“They are out of tricks,” she said.
