Some Incumbents Get Scant Help From National Party

Posted:

GAITHERSBURG, Md. (AP)- Thanks for your service, and good luck.

That's what the national parties are saying to a few congressional incumbents like Republican Roscoe Bartlett of Maryland and Democrat Larry Kissell of North Carolina.

Federal Election Commission records show the two are among a tiny group of veteran congressmen this year getting little help from their national party as they seek re-election.

The lack of support for incumbents by their national party is a phenomenon that happens to some degree in every election. This year it's driven in part by once-a-decade redistricting and the occasional political scandal.
