Bob Fitzsimmonds, who is the Republican nominee challenging Chuck Colgan in the 29th Senate District, has this to lay on his opponent:
Though the budget is of vital importance, Immigration is what I hear most at the doors. I continue to get a positive response from voters about my immigration plan. My opponent’s website originally claimed that illegal immigration is a federal problem and proposed no action plan. He has since even removed this statement and his website is currently silent on the issue. Having voted to provide benefits to illegal aliens, it is no wonder that he is choosing to remain silent now.
That’s going to play pretty well with voters this election season. Are the hopes of Democrats to take the senate going to run into the wall of public outrage over the Senate’s refusal to address the illegal alien issue, and might the steadfast refusal by the Democratic leadership to even consider statewide participation in the Section 287(g) Program hamstring their candidates?
It might happen. If Democrats don’t get on board, their chances to take the Senate in November could be in serious trouble.
