    Turner has brazillions that he has not so far used.  I fear he has the seat unless it's a wave election...and we're not there, yet.  
    Neuhardt is the real deal, and she will be my rep. if all goes well.
    Turnout, turnout, turnout.

      Yes, he has a pretty good cash-on-hand nest egg, but he was asleep at the wheel until just recently, assuming this was going to be like every other race he was in, without a serious challenger. Sharen has been working her butt off (I saw her at the state dinner in Columbus last Saturday showing off her comfortable flat walking shoes to fellow congressional candidate Joyce Beatty) and her fundraising has been strong.

      You are absolutely dead on about turnout. Montgomery has a turnout problem that no one seems able to explain to me. People kept saying Cuyahoga (Cleveland) would hurt the Democrats in 2010 because the corruption scandal would depress turnout. It didn't. Dayton gave us Governor Kasich by not voting. Why?

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07. http://www.ewaynepowell.com/

        We worked our asses off.  Dayton's voters were beyond depressed, I get a slightly better feeling this year, thanks to Ka$ich and the crew, and of course, Pres. Obama is on the ballot this year.
        One thing that did not help was some intra-party squabbling here but I think by-gones may be by-gones ...
        time will tell.
        All we can do is work hard and work harder.
