    He needed 50 from the entire district. Problem was, he collected most of his signatures from his home county - Belmont.
    Problem is, Belmont County is also partially in the 18th (Ney's), and many of the signatures were invalidated because Wilson's campaign didn't realize that part of Belmont County did not lie in the 6th District. He only had 46 (or was it 48) valid signatures, and here is the mess we have today.
    Of course, I think that the other two candidates are practically unknown (one is from Michigan who ran in the 1st District there in 1996, the other is the guy who ran as a write-in in 2004 against Ted Strickland, and got an underwhelming .04% of the vote, IIRC). Plus, the NRCC has practically been helping Wilson out by airing attack ads...and boosting his name rec, which probably benefitted his write-in campaign more than it hurt.

      This guy has been making over the top statements and has allegedly claimed to be former Michigan Congressman Bob Carr (they have the same name and are from the same state).  The former write-in candidate has tried to petition to have this guy get mentally evaluated.  The guy ran in 1996/1998 in Bart Stupak's district and, according to the Detroit Free Press, beat costed the favored Republican the nomination at least once (he ran as a Republican in Michigan).
