Charlotte now more radioactive than Chernobyl.
Via Ballot Box:
Both Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) and Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) will skip their parties’ upcoming national conventions, their campaigns told The Hill on Monday, in order to concentrate on their Senate race.
A campaign spokesman said Rehberg would remain in Montana to focus on his campaign against the freshman senator rather than attend the convention in Tampa, Fla., in August. Tester’s campaign quickly followed suit to say they would skip the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., which is the week after the GOP gathering.
While a number of vulnerable Democratic incumbents have said they won’t attend their party’s gathering, Rehberg is the first Republican to take a similar approach.
