MASON CITY – Jay Urdahl, a long-time Democrat serving his 24th year as a Cerro Gordo County Supervisor, recently approached prominent Republican Dr. Gary Blodgett for help in raising funds for his re-election campaign, NorthIowaToday.com has learned.
Dr. Blodgett obliged and wrote a fundraising letter which was mailed out to several dozen potential donors.
This despite the fact that the Urdahl campaign has over $15,000 already on hand.
In the letter, which sources tell NorthIowaToday.com is the second letter that Blodgett has sent out on behalf of Urdahl since last fall, Blodgett says that Urdahl “is a superb watchdog of OUR tax dollars.”
“Mason City is loaded with liberals,” Blodgett states in the letter, ” who’ve got their eyes on YOUR tax dollars.”
When reached for comment, Dr. Blodgett confirmed that the letter was authored by him, and added that “I believe Jay Urdahl is a good man who has done a great job as a supervisor. He’s non-partisan, very able, and deserves to be re-elected. That’s all I have to say.”
