Kreitlow warns Dems against complacency

Sen. Pat Kreitlow warned that Democrats will lose if they become complacent in the face of what he said will be non-stop Republican rhetoric as the campaign continues.

“Like so much sludge from a deep water pipe” Dems are going to face “months of rhetoric spewed by the right-wing noise machine,” said Kreitlow, a GOP-targeted incumbent this fall who's here representing Senate Democrats.

He warned Dems that the GOP would do the hard work of getting its message out and that they should not take anything for granted.

“We will lose if we are at all complacent about our successes in '06 or '08 and assume somebody else will do the work this time,” Kreitlow said. “Just as critical for everybody to hear: we will lose if we are disillusioned over what we have yet to accomplish.”

He pointed to a number of Democratic-led initiatives over the year, such as ending a “state loophole” that cut into veteran education benefits, making it easier for people to report fraud, waste and abuse, strengthening special education, expanding health care for families and taking Supreme Court elections “out of the gutter” with campaign fiance reform.

Kreitlow said Republicans, on the other hand, are seeking to bring back the polices that caused “utter chaos” when they last had power.

“It's not a revolution that they are selling; it's a rerun,” Kreitlow said. “It's a roadmap to economic ruin, part two, and we cannot let that message take root.”
