Carson Turns To Labor Unions And Muslim PAC For Money
The campaign of U.S. Rep. Andre Carson, struggling to compete with the self-financed campaign of Dr. Woody Myers, raised $30,000 in special interest money from a variety of labor union PACs and the Indiana Muslim Political Action Committee according to his latest filings with the FEC. That's a drop in the bucket compared to the $450,000 Myers just kicked into his campaign treasury, bringing his total contributions to nearly $1.3 million. There is no indication the DCCC is dumping any money into Carson's primary race like the $250,000 it gave to Carson in the special election race against State Rep. Jon Elrod.
