  •  IN-6: Some guy probably running (0+ / 0-)

    I was playing around with my browser opening up bookmarks at random earlier and I ended up seeing this post press release on Blue Indiana announcing that Ohio County businessman Lane Siekman is 'considering' a run in the new 6th District.

    It probably doesn't matter, since I'm doubtful the 6th will ever be competitive, unless the Republicans nominate a dead convicted felon or the Loch Ness monster, and even then it'd only be tossup/tilt D. It does give me an opportunity to talk about Ohio County, though! Look at it! It's so tiny! Which I guess means it's not the best political base for a Congressional candidate...

      Is Switzerland County. In the 2008 gubernatorial election, Jill Long Thompson and Daniels tied. I find this absolutely hilarious.

        it was 2004 that Switzerland County tied. But it's often very close there.

        •  Yeah, a lot of the little river counties are weird (0+ / 0-)

          Daniels and Joe Kernan also came to a tie in my Crawford County, apparently. I wasn't really interested in politics in 2004, but if I had been, I would have thought that was awful cool.
