When Tim Walberg (R) was looking for a fundraising boost, what did he do? He invited Vice President Dick Cheney to a fundraising lunch that, technically speaking, wasn't even in Michigan's 7th Congressional District.
Who attended? I don't know, but they must have really loved Tim Walberg and Dick Cheney, 'cause it was pretty expensive lunch:
Cheney pulled in about $150,000 at a luncheon for Walberg, R-Tipton, who is battling Sharon Renier, D-Munith, in the Jackson area's race for Congress.(Emphasis added)
$250 a plate.
Now, what does Sharon Marie Renier (D) do when she's hoping to raise some money?
You doing anything tomorrow? Got $7? Head on over to Battle Creek and have some cake.
Is Battle Creek too far of a drive, or is 9:30 AM tomorrow inconvenient? Why don't you consider giving her a few bucks anyway?
Despite all the "conventional wisdom," this can become a competitive race. Tim Walberg does not have the support of the many Schwarz-style moderates in the district, and Sharon Renier is out their working hard to get her message out and earn votes. But when Tim Walberg has somebody like Dick Cheney to help bring in the big money, who does Renier have to help her?

FYI, above is a link to a site which details, actual state documents, of Walberg's record in the State House.
Must reading before voting in November.

Go and ask Troutman. He isn't publically broadcasting his support, but those in 7th District [GOP] circles know this to be the case--he does NOT like Walberg.
...Thus he has told folks that he is voting for the Democrat.
