I saw this posting on dcpoliticalreport.com about Ralph Regula's questionable earmarking of $2mil to the National First Ladies Library in his district, which is of course run by his wife.  I decided to investigate what yet another potentially corrupt politician was all about, so I went to regulaforcongress.com, his re-election campaign site.  Looking toward the bottom of the page, I saw this:

Your Congressman, effectively representing Ohio
and the 16th District's concerns in Washington

Paid for and authorized by the Regula For Congress Committee, Mary Regula, Chair,
228 S. Washington, Ste. 115, Alexandria, VA 22314  

Now, pray tell, where is Congrssman Regula representing, when his campaign committee is not even based out of his district?  This has to be a first, as most (if not all) other congressmen and women base their re-election committees out of their congressional district. This not only suggests incompetance, but also the complete disregard for his district.  Too bad his district is so strongly GOP; maybe then he would feel the need to stop on by the 16th.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

      he didn't win renomination without a fight. That was a nice evening, knowing that fool was sweating bullets as a no name GOP candidate almost knocked him out of Congress.

    •  Matt Miller (0+ / 0-)

      Isn't a no name candidate around this part of Regula's district.  I honestly wish Miller would of won, as he's actually a pretty decent guy.  Disagree with him on alot of things, but agree with him on others.  Anyways Ralph has been in Congress since the early 1970s, of course he's going to live in VA while having a farm here in his district.

    Bush won this district 54%-46%, while he was winning nationally 51%-48%. This is not so different from your tyical district. Regula is 81 years old. His challenger is Thomas Shaw. If you're in this district, check him out. http://www.shawforcongress.com/
