Main Street Partnership Backs Bradley Comeback
The Republican Main Street Partnership’s political action committee has endorsed former Rep. Jeb Bradley (R) in his quest to get his old job back.
“Jeb Bradley charted a centrist, independent way during his time in Congress,” Rep. Fred Upton (Mich.), head of the RMSP PAC, said in a statement.
Bradley, who represented the 1st district for two terms, was upset last year by now-Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D).
John Stephen, a former state health commissioner who lost to Bradley in the 2002 GOP primary, is preparing to run again next year, meaning the former Congressman could have a primary to deal with before he would be able to set his sights on Shea-Porter.
Bradley trailed Shea-Porter in cash on hand to close the second quarter of this year, though not by much, as he finished the period with $201,000 in the bank, compared with the Congresswoman’s $256,000.
