Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson , whose 8th District is a GOP target for 2010 , sought to attract fundraising dollars Thursday by launching an attack on National Republican Congressional Commitee (NRCC) Chairman Pete Sessions .

Freshman Grayson called Sessions, a Texas congressman, “crazy, “a lunatic,” “demented,” and “paranoid” in a fundraising e-mail to supporters.  

Grayson attacked Sessions for stating that President Obama wishes to “inflict damage and hardship on the free enterprise system” and for the national party’s attempts to blame Grayson personally for the national debt.
