Menendez fundraising for challenger to Wisconsin Gov. Walker

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) just invaded Gov. Chris Christie’s turf in WIsconsin with an afternoon email blast to fundraising backers seeking support for Democratic challenger Mary Burke.

Burke is running against incumbent Republican Gov. Scott Walker.

“Mary Burke is running a single-digit race in Wisconsin, where Scott Walker has his special interest backers flooding the airwaves with malicious attacks,” says Menendez in the email. “Still, the polls show Mary can defeat Walker, but only with our help today.”

Christie campaigned with Walker just late last month.

In his email blast, Menendez also appealed to his supporters to give to Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis.
