Nebraska 2nd District Congressman Brad Ashford is getting heat from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee for not focusing on fundraising for his 2016 election. Congressman Ashford says while fundraising is important so is focusing on his job.
Congressman Ashford says, “I spend half of my day just dealing with the ISIS issue because our sub-committee works on it. The fundraising, obviously everybody needs money to run campaigns but it’s got to be a secondary consideration.”
Congressman Ashford goes on to say that if the U-S House would actually debate bills there would be “zero” time for fundraising. He goes on to say that bills have to be discussed and that isn’t done so he is introducing a bill that would require all bills be debated ten hours before the vote. He says there are regulations in place now but typically they are suspended.
