Jacky Rosen Voted to Shut Down the Government. Now She’s Fundraising Off It.

Rep. Jacky Rosen’s (D-NV) voted against a bill that would have funded the government Friday night and is now using the government shutdown to fundraise for her United States Senate campaign.

On Saturday, Rosen emailed her supporters asking them to donate to her Senate campaign, citing the government shutdown and the need to fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), as reasons why they should donate to her campaign.

“It’s been 10 hours since Republicans shut down the government. With full GOP control of the White House, Senate and House, there’s simply no doubt where the blame lies,” Rosen’s email reads. “But this shutdown is about so much more than just politics and blame: It’s heartbreaking. Despite broad support for bipartisan agreements that protect Dreamers and funds the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Republicans have forced this reckless shutdown at the expense of young people across our country.”

However, what Rosen does not tell her supporters is that she voted against a government-funding bill that would have averted a government shutdown while funding CHIP for six years.

“Jacky Rosen soliciting donations off the government shutdown that she voted for is as hypocritical as it is pathetic. Rosen’s reckless vote may score her points with liberal extremists, but it’s going to cost her dearly in November,” Chris Pack a spokesperson for the Senate Leadership Fund said in a statement about Rosen’s fundraising email.
