Hackett Running For U.S. Senate In Ohio Monday, October 03, 2005

Paul Hackett, the man who nearly beat the dealer in a vicious battle for Ohio's 2nd Congressional District, a dense Republican area, against Jean Schmidt, announced today he would be running for the U.S. Senate in 2006. Apparently, he's been to Washington to meet with Minority Leader Harry Reid, D - Nev, and is ready to start the battle again.

I picked up the story from MyDD and they led me to OhioNewsNow.

I'd say he's got a shot at it since some parts of Ohio are Democrat and he's got the some moral high ground here to combat a weakened Republican army in Ohio. I could easily see the event in Newport on 10/22 with Joe Biden and Wendell Ford being a nice place to get some PR and party support. I could also see Max Cleland from Georgia coming up to work the crowd for this guy.

That news made my day. I think he has a good chance at winning - there were people coming from all over the place to work his campaign - lots from Kentucky. Change for Kentucky had crews working an entire weekend right before the election - I was one of those people.

I am going to the Biden event on the 22nd and am looking forward to hearing him speak. He has support across the entire country, thanks to Democracy for America. I watched him debate Jean Schmidt a couple of times and she is low class.

I will work for Paul Hackett. I want him to win SO BAD!
