Cong. OH-8: Boehner (R) Wins Leadership Post, Dems Need a Candidate
Ohio Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) has won a surprising second-ballot victory over Tom DeLay protege Roy Blunt (R-MO) in the contest for House Majority Leader. For Democrats, this means we need a candidate in the OH-8 race, NOW.
First, because Boehner is the only Republican Congressional incumbent in Ohio who is unopposed. Second, because of the dirty tricks that the Republicans pulled to oust House Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) in 2004. Third, because Boehner's ties to the corrupt K Street lobbying cesspool are thick and deep, so we need someone on the campaign trail calling attention to them each and every day between now and November.
The filing deadline is February 16. Who's it going to be?
