Today, former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter, who is running for Congress in the First Congressional District, released the following statement.
"A Republican Super PAC run by those close to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is attacking a Republican candidate's call to abolish the Department of Education as too "extreme." The Young Guns Super PAC is run by Eric Cantor's ex-aides, and takes its very name "Young Guns" from the self-described "young gun" House Majority Leader Cantor. The Super PAC has been actively trying to defeat one of the Republican primary candidates and they give this as a main reason. The Young Guns Super PAC believes as I do--that Congressman Frank Guinta's call to abolish the Department of Education is too "extreme." Clearly, even Eric Cantor's crowd knows that those who want to abolish the Department of Education, including Congressman Frank Guinta, are too extreme and should be defeated."
