Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank is accusing NRCC Chairman Greg Walden of flip-flopping on the clout of David Jolly's recent Florida election win.
Prior to Jolly's win, Walden said:
Whether we win it or lose it, the special elections aren't too predictive for either side going forward. If there's any advantage of a special election, it's that you can test messages, and you can test strategies, and you can test sort of your theories on voter turnout and I.D.
The morning after Election Day, Walden said:
Tonight, one of Nancy Pelosi's most prized candidates was ultimately brought down because of her unwavering support for Obamacare, and that should be a loud warning for other Democrats running coast to coast.
