Paul Hackett for OH-02
Paul Hackett is running in the special election for Ohio's 2nd Congressional District on the Democratic ticket.
His opponent, Jean Schmidt was initially favored to win this traditional GOP seat, however her campaign is stumbling due to the continuing war in Iraq, allegations of corruption and wrongdoing in Ohio's GOP managed pension fund, and lately her own attacks on Hackett for serving in Iraq.
The normally conservative Cincinatti Post has endorsed him as
a gust of fresh air.
If elected next Tuesday, he will become the only member of Congress with direct military experience in Iraq.
I've donated some money to his campaign via ActBlue. It's a tight race and the odds are against him, but if you support progressive causes you might chip in a buck or two.
