Las Vegas, NV – A new profile from the Associated Press shows that even Tea Party Congressman Cresent Hardy doesn’t think he’s going to make it back to Washington next year.
– Not even trying to fake confidence, Hardy told the AP: “I’m worried about my race.”
– Hardy isn’t bothering to defend his Tea Party record. Even Republican Congressman Mark Amodei “joked that [Hardy] ‘runs from newspapers.’”
– Hardy and Amodei were actually roommates in DC, but then Hardy didn’t sign a new lease… because he knows voters are sending him home in November. So Hardy “now sleeps in his office on an air mattress” — enjoying rent-free housing thanks to taxpayers!
– Hardy’s political consultant Ryan Erwin says that, instead of being a Congressman, Hardy “could be just as happy sitting out next to his campfire.” We’re glad he’ll have a post-election hobby.
