Major GOP group pulls support for 2 imperiled congressmen
DENVER (AP) — A major Republican political group is pulling its support of two endangered GOP House members.
The Congressional Leadership Fund confirmed Friday it was ending spending to support Rep. Mike Bishop in Michigan and Rep. Mike Coffman in Colorado.
The group is aligned with House Speaker Paul Ryan and is Republican leadership’s main financial vehicle for preserving the GOP House majority.
In dropping two swing district congressmen it sends a signal of how difficult those races will be, given Democratic energy and President Donald Trump’s sagging poll numbers.
