Hackett Will RunGo Paul, go!
Via The Huffington Post:
Paul Hackett, the Iraq veteran who recently ran for Congress as a Democrat in the special election from Ohio’s second district, will announce his campaign for the U.S. Senate. Hackett, a father of three and practicing Cincinnati lawyer, volunteered for the Iraq War in 2004 while serving in the Select Marine Corps Reserve. He spent seven months in Ramadi and Fallujah.Like John Kerry, he served his country well as a soldier. Unlike John Kerry, he doesn't blink in a political fight.
Hackett lost his Congressional bid in an extremely conservative Ohio district by a slim margin but his chances of winning a senate seat in ' 06 are quite good. With the culture of corruption in both the National and Ohio Republican Party, the state is ripe for the picking.
Unlike his first run, I hope the National Democratic Party will lend him a timely and all-out support in '06.
