Dodd, Murtha Among 2010 Targets of Family Research Council PAC
The conservative Family Research Council’s political action committee plans to target 16 congressional races in 2010. The group’s president, Tony Perkins, said the PAC has a goal of raising $1 million to boost grassroots activity in targeted races.
The group wants to spend money to help favored candidates take over the seats now represented by:
Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democrat who is running for a full term in Colorado after his appointment this year;
Sen. Christopher J. Dodd, a Democrat who is running for re-election in Connecticut;
New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg, a Republican who is retiring;
