I'm Entering the Game Late

Paul Hackett is running for Congress in a special election in 8 days for Ohio's 2nd Congressional District. Bush won the district last year with 65% of the vote. There is no polling data, but Hackett is apparently badly outfundraising his right wing opponent Jean Schmidt is deeply in debt. It's a long shot, but a win (or even a close race) here would be extremely encouraging heading into 2006. Schmidt seems to be acting desperate as her campaign has begun the Swift Boat Veteran Attack. The new political strategy where you question your opponent's military service even though they've served their Country and you haven't.
