    Last year's result proved that. The only way to get rid of him is if he retires like LaTourette. As JanL said, he gets mucho mileage out of his support for Wright-Patterson, the lead issue in any campaign here, and pretends to be a "moderate" as long as you don't look at his voting record (much like LaTourette).

    Last year's race featured a very strong candidate in Sharen Neuhardtm who did raise significant money and did get help from national organizations (we can always quibble about how much more the national party should have helped but remember, they have hundreds of races).

    There probably isn't a better candidate in the district than Neuhardt, we can't really expect the national party to pour enough money in this district to reach parity, especially since the results were much more lopsided than the money disparity would indicate — it's not like Sharen had NO money. But she only got 37% of the vote.

    Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.

    •  I think you still have to try (0+ / 0-)

      You're right that, given the 2012 election results, the race shouldn't be a major priority, though.
