Mitchell is having money problems
It's a close race, but between the polls that show Mitchell not getting over 50% (not a healthy sign for an incumbent) and his money woes, it's not looking good:
Now, Mitchell is one of six democrats the DCCC is hoping to salvage with a last minute influx of cash. In an internal memo leaked to the Schweikert campaign, the DCCC says Rep. Mitchell is spending faster than he is raising funds.
In the leaked memo, Amy Phaehler, Deputy Mid-Atlantic Finance Director for the DCCC says in order for Mitchell and five other Democrats to “keep their seats,” we “REALLY need it this week.” Other targeted Democrats include AR-01 candidate Chad Causey; NV-02 Dina Titus; NY-19 John Hall; WA-03 candidate Denny Heck; and AZ-01 Ann Kirkpatrick.
Even the Arizona Republic thinks we need to Send Schweikert to Washington.
