Stupak saves Tea Party Express $200,000

From a Tea Party Express press release:

Congressman Bart Stupak has been insisting that the Tea Party Express' $250,000 campaign to "Defeat Bart Stupak" had nothing to do with his forced retirement. In an interview with Fox News, Stupak said he was proud of himself for "sucking dry" the treasury of the tea party movement.

But Stupak showed his ignorance and arrogance. In fact, by announcing his retirement in the middle of our "Defeat Bart Stupak" campaign, Stupak allowed us to halt the purchase of additional TV and radio airtime for our ads. Thus, as Congressional Quarterly reported, we'd only spent $50,000 in our campaign and has allowed us to save $200,000 to use against other failed incumbents in Congress.

Here are Stupak's comments:

If anything I just made the tea party people spend a lot of money that wasn't necessary on all these ads they have to run against me so they can't use it on anyone else. So I'll take credit for sucking their treasury dry.

More Democratic arrogance.
