Not All Typos Are Created Equal

After Richard Hudson won the Republican House primary runoff in North Carolina's 8th District Tuesday night, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Pete Sessions followed up with the typical congratulatory statement for his new nominee. Except somewhere in the middle, Sessions went a bit off message.

In the second paragraph of his statement, Sessions says that Richard Hudson is "a tireless champion of the public sector," (bold mine), a late-night slip of the pen. The Club for Growth and GOP primary opponent Scott Keadle had argued for months that Hudson, a former Hill aide, was a creature of government and would be in the pocket of Republican leadership if nominated and elected.

Keadle might not have gotten many votes, but part of his message seems to have subconsciously slipped through.
