    $17K left. I read he was paying himself $5K a month. 3 months left before he has to file for unemployment to fund his campaign.

    •  He has no shot (0+ / 0-)

      The Republicans gerrymandered the state so badly, no Republican has any hope of winning this district. That's why a credible candidate withdrew. They're just letting Joey play candidate dress-up Whoever wins the Democrat primary March 6 will win in November.

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

        That PPP poll showed her tied with Renacci.  Is that accurate in your view?

        Sh*t politicians say: “The polls that I’ve seen show that if this goes to the ballot, I lose. How much more magnanimous could I be? What else do you want me to do? Go campaign for it too? Look, I’m doing the best I can here!” -Gov. Chris Christie

        •  Yes, I think that is accurate (4+ / 0-)

          What I think the Republicans who cut this district deep into Cuyahoga County (Cleveland) didn't take into account in their lust to shatter Cuyahoga into pieces and attempt to destroy its Democratic Party (since we provide the biggest bloc of Democratic votes in the state) is that they handed Betty a piece of a powerful machine in the southwest party of the county — very blue-collar union, very auto-imdustry dependent (Betty wrote Cash for Clunkers and saved a whole shitload of jobs here). These people are already out organizing for her. And although she previously represented only a tiny piece of Cuyahoga, she has always been proactive about interacting with people here, so she's not unknown in her new territory. She's also a dynamic campaigner and a very likable person, as Renacci is not. She's got a lot of things in her favor, and yes, I believe she could win this one.

          If she does, that might mean that four of Ohio's five Democratic congresspeople (we could win a sixth district but it's  long shot – this is really the only district out of 16 that could swing at all, never mind that it's overwhelmingly likely a majority of ohio voters will vote for a Democrat for Congress in November) are women. (Marcy Kaptur is strongly favored to beat Kucinich — and good riddance — in 0h-09 in March).

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