From the Bailout Battle to the Campaign Trail
September 30, 2008

Fresh off  Capitol Hill and the bitterly divisive, and still UNSUCCESSFUL  battle to pass the staggering $700 Billion bailout plan, Republican Minority Leader John Boehner  will travel to the Houston area this weekend to campaign for 22nd Congressional District Candidate Pete Olson.

The House Republican leader will appear at the opening for the Galveston County GOP Headquarters in League City on Saturday, October 4, 2008.

That office is located at 1100 Gulf Freeway, Suite 104 in League City, Texas.

Olson is campaigning to defeat incumbent Democratic U.S. Congressman Nick Lampson.

According to an announcement from the Olson campaign, Mr. Boehner will discuss the importance of the race in the Texas 22nd Congressional district race for the national party.

2 on the Beat imagines that the minority leader will also have a few choice words to say about the bailout plan (assuming a plan has been passed by Saturday) which is very unpopular with taxpayers.
