Quote of the Day: the Austin Scott edition

"Jim, when he’s in Georgia he says he’s conservative, but when he goes to Washington he votes with Charlie Rangel"

-Republican congressional candidate Austin Scott attempting to link U.S. Representative Jim Marshall (D - Georgia) with embattled New York Democrat Charlie Rangel, who is the focus of a congressional ethics investigation.

Scott may find his efforts to connect Marshall with Rangel a little bit easier these days, as research shows that between 2004 and 2008, Rangel's National Leadership PAC contributed $17,000 to Marshall's re-election campaigns [SOURCE: Open Secrets.org].

CQ Politics and the Cook Political Report both rate the 8th congressional district of Georgia as "likely Democratic."
