Anti-Incumbent Super PAC Spending for McIntosh in Open Seat Race

May 1, 2012

The Campaign for Primary Accountability, a super PAC dedicated to taking down incumbents, will make its first independent expenditures in an open seat race in the next week. The PAC will spend money supporting Republican former Rep. David McIntosh in Indiana's 5th District, currently held by retiring GOP Rep. Dan Burton.

The Campaign for Primary Accountability's stated goal is to unseat unpopular incumbents in safe seats, and the PAC already declared victory in Indiana's 5th District. Burton announced in January that he would retire at the end of the year, after CPA released a poll showing Burton below 30 percent in a crowded primary field.

Though there is no longer an incumbent to dethrone, CPA has decided to spend in the Burton-less race as a sign of encouragement for other challengers. "Veteran incumbent Dan Burton declined to seek reelection after the emergence of a very strong challenger, David McIntosh," said CPA spokesperson Curtis Ellis. "CPA will stay engaged in [Indiana's 5th District] to encourage strong candidates and serious citizens everywhere, Republicans and Democrats, to challenge entrenched incumbents in one-party districts."
