Braley Takes in Texas Sized Haul From Out of State Trial Lawyers

Bruce Braley hauled in at least $60,100 from Texas trial lawyers in the first quarter, according to the campaign’s FEC report.

That’s the same Texas where Braley hosted his trial lawyer fundraiser and got caught on camera bashing Iowa’s farmers amidst a promise to be the “voice” of trial lawyers on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

BRALEY: “To put this in stark contrast, if you help me win this race you may have someone with your background, your experience, your voice, someone who’s been literally fighting tort reform for thirty years, in a visible or public way, on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Or, you might have a farmer from Iowa who never went to law school, never practiced law, serving as the next Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Because, if Democrats lose the majority, Chuck Grassley will be the Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.”

It’s no wonder Braley cozies up to these wealthy, out-of-state donors–they’re funding his campaign.
