Writing in National Journal, Josh Kraushaar names New Hampshire Congressman Charlie Bass as one of the “top 10 congressional turkeys on the chopping block.” The list of vulnerable lawmakers will be long next year, Kraushaar says, but a select few stand out.
Being from a state that’s leaning Republican, Bass would appear to be in good shape. But Bass is doing everything to put himself in trouble. His fundraising totals have been anemic, and he’s alienated conservatives by entertaining a willingness to raise taxes. Bass is facing a rematch against Democrat Ann McLane Kuster for a seat he barely won in 2010.
