    most likely — and take voters from Dennis, assuring Marcy's win. That is my guess.

    As far as I can tell, Marcy hasn't done anything to aggravate her Toledo base. With the second, adjusted, but still abominable Republican map, almost 100,000 Toledo voters were returned to her district, meaning more of her base. A vast swath of Dennis' base was sheared away and put in two other districts. And it turns out voters in the remaining swath  are not that excited about him. Said one person at a house party for Graham the other day, "When  saw the map, I said to my wife, 'The Marcy Kaptur signs go up tomorrow.'"

    Marcy has been working her new territory hard. She opened a campaign office in Lorain County, formerly in Betty Sutton's district. She's been hitting events here in Cleveland. Dennis apparently thinks being Dennis is all he has to do, and I don't think he realized the degree to which people are tired of his posturing here. The threat to move to Washington was the straw that broke the camel's back. He's toast. And Graham is going to help toast him.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
