Granite State Progress issued a release on April 1 calling out the Minnesota politician for his hurling charges of absenteeism in 2010 toward his Democratic opponent James Oberstar. The campaign move, according to the release, was directed at Oberstar's out-of-state residency in Maryland.
Zandra Rice Hawkins, Executive Director of Granite State Progress, issued a statement blasting Cravaack's little time spent in Minnesota's 8th District."If Congressman Cravaack ran in New Hampshire, he could spend more time with his family and not have to release those pesky records Minnesotans are demanding to find out how much time he is actually spending in Minnesota's 8th District. The only challenge for Cravaack here in New Hampshire might be convincing his New Hampshire constituents that, despite his record in Minnesota, he sides with working families, not corporate special interests."
