Rep. Cao's Campaign Contributions Are Low

As a rule, I don't give money to political campaigns. I make no exceptions. But for those of you who do contribute to political campaigns (especially those interested in contributing to solidly pro-life candidates), Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao could use your help:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The lone Republican lawmaker to support Democratic health care legislation has seen his fundraising drop by nearly 40 percent since his vote, and he is quickly burning through a dwindling bank account after resorting to a costly national fundraising operation.

Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao, the unlikely congressman from New Orleans, is facing the perils of bipartisanship unlike any other lawmaker in Washington - trying to please a heavily Democratic constituency while relying on core conservatives for money to fuel his campaign.

Although Republican leaders have continued supporting Cao with money from their campaign committees despite his health care position, the conservative donors he's courting around the country may not be so forgiving...
Here's Rep. Cao in action on the floor of the House of Representatives:

Dad29 I also will say as to CAO vote he is also appearing to be one of the vote against it.

If Cao loses he will not pay the price. He is a pretty humble guy and will be fine going back to teaching law

It is citizens that will pay the price and especially the unborn.

He will be replaced by a very PRO-Choice Dem.

I thing Cao might be toast. It was a fluke that he won in the first place.

So, James, you are telling us that imposing Government-specified health-plan designs on the entire populace is a "good"?

Did it occur that the Government's mind changes now and then?

Cao is, by all testimony, a good guy. Fine. He should have supported the Ryan Plan, e.g.
