Buerkle Becomes Democrats’ Prime N.Y. Target

Bill Clark/Roll Call
GOP strategists didn’t think tea party darling Ann Marie Buerkle was a sure thing to win a House seat last fall. Thanks to a national wave, Buerkle narrowly unseated Democratic Rep. Dan Maffei to become a Member of Congress.

NRCC spokesman Tory Mazzola lauded Buerkle as working to "cut wasteful spending and help reduce our nation's massive debt" and bashed the former Congressman. He said, "If you need more proof that Washington Democrats want to make Nancy Pelosi House Speaker again, look no further than their efforts to recruit her loyal ally Dan Maffei as a candidate."
