Campaign for Primary Accountability

A spokesman for the anti-incumbent super PAC that's targeting Charlie Rangel said this afternoon that the group might add longtime Michigan congressman John Conyers to its list of targets.
"We're looking at it," said Curtis Ellis, the spokesman for the Campaign for Primary Accountability.
The super PAC that's targeting Charlie Rangel made its first official foray into his primary contest over the weekend.
The anti-incumbent super PAC that's targeting Charlie Rangel is now soliciting small-dollar donations for its campaign to unseat the 42-year incumbent.
"Perhaps no single incumbent politician deserves to be fired more than the ethically-challenged Rangel," wrote Eric O'Keefe, the co-chairman of the Campaign for Primary Accountability in an email to supporters this morning.
Even without a $10 million, Jeremiah Wright-themed ad campaign, conservative billionaire Joe Ricketts is poised to have an outsize effect on the 2012 cycle.
But it might not be all bad for Democrats.
"Clyde Williams is not as well known in the district as Senator Espaillat," Ellis said. " He doesn't have that solid record of representing people."
The Campaign for Primary Accountability, a new super PAC bent on purging incumbents of both parties, has decided to make Charlie Rangel a target.
"Charlie Rangel is a model of the long-term incumbent who becomes too comfortable with the special interests that infest Washington," the group said in a release this morning.
