Fox News employment again used as GOP launching pad for office

Back in May 2008, McGlowan announced on-air that she’s going back to Mississippi to “beat” Rep. Travis W. Childers, stating: “That’s all right, sweetie, that’s my district, and I’m going there soon to beat your Democrat colleague, honey. I’m going soon. 2010 is my year. Announcing it right here.”

. . .

From the November 24, 2009, edition of FBN’s Cavuto:
MCGLOWAN: Charles, I’ve worked in Washington D.C. for over a decade. I’ve talked to veterans in Mississippi. I’ve talked to (INAUDIBLE) already parties where the American people are tired of being taxed.

[…]

PAYNE: Every American probably would agree on that but let’s just talk now about people who were saying we have already spent so much on this war to begin with, over $230 billion. In Mississippi that money could have gone to pay for let’s say head start for 150,000 kids, for health care for 200,000 people. The person in Mississippi who is struggling right now, wouldn’t they say let the rich pay for this because we need to, we can’t afford it?

MCGLOWAN: I’m from that state and I know that state. You have true patriots and true Americans there. In essence, you do have the rich and you have the poor, but you have people that want to see a country where we are not taxed. And once you start, where does it end?
