Less than a week after news broke of Cantor gucci bags cutting a check to the Campaign for Primary Accountability, a group focused on defeating incumbent members of Congress, Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-Ill.) was back in his district dodging questions about whether he agreed with Cantor's decision to influence the race between two GOP incumbents, fellow Illinois Reps. Don Manzullo and Adam Kinzinger. Both were lumped into the same district after redistricting. Kinzinger, a freshman, ultimately defeated the 10-term Manzullo with the help of Cantor's money.
"I chose not to get involved in that race," Hultgren told reporters at an unrelated local press conference on Wednesday, according to Crain's Chicago Business.
Asked if he supported Cantor getting involved in the primary race between two incumbents, Hultgren said, "We'll still have the opportunity to talk this through further. The race gucci handbags outcome wasn't very close. I'll leave it up to the voters."
Pressed again on whether Cantor made a bad call in trying to influence a race between two members of his House Republican conference, Hulgren replied, "That's something we'll have to talk about further."
Cantor has gotten in hot water not just for intervening in the Manzullo-Kinzinger primary, but also for giving money to a super PAC that appears to be using his funds for other gucci shirts campaigns it is involved in -- including primaries targeting some of his allies.
