As we told you earlier, Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) said during a radio interview this morning that despite his well-chronicled personal travails, 2010 candidates have told him they wanted him to campaign for them.
“A lot of people running for office next year, I’ve met with them, they actually want me involved in their campaigns,” the philandering lawmaker told Alan Stock of Las Vegas’s KXNT News Radio. “I’m gonna try to be helpful without being hurtful.”
Ensign hasn’t exactly been welcomed back into the Republican fold since confessing his affair this summer. So we asked his office exactly which candidates he was referring to.
The response: crickets. They haven’t returned our call.
We’ll let you know if we get a response.
