Whoops. Is the National Republican Campaign Committee (NRCC) interested in getting Rep. Gary Peters (D-MI) reelected? It would seem so from a list of fundraising events the party committee sent out this week featuring a fundraiser for the Michigan congressman on June 11, featuring "special guest" Rep. John Dingell (D-MI).

This was more than a bit odd, considering that the committee targeting Peters, among other Dems, "to confront these Democrats for endorsing a reckless spending spree in Washington and authorizing over $1.2 trillion in new spending so far this year."
Minutes after sending that list out, the NRCC sent out a new list: "Please disregard previous Calendar of Events. See attached." Mention of the Peters fundraiser had disappeared. We imagine the folks at the NRCC realized they were taking bipartisanship a bit too far.
