The More Thelma Drake Fills Up From Big Oil, the More Virginians Pay at the Pump
As gas prices continue to break records this year, Representative Thelma Drake (VA-02) has watched her campaign cash from Big Oil steadily grow, as can be seen in a chart released today by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
“Thelma Drake’s connection to Big Oil is clear – as she
gets more money for her campaign from her Big Oil friends, Virginians pay more
at the pump,” said
The DCCC is running radio ads in Drake’s district this week highlighting her votes for George Bush and Big Oil, read by a Bush impersonator. The ad can be heard at www.dccc.org/independence.
