Paul Hackett (OH-2)

by eriposte

An August special election is brewing in Ohio in a conservative Republican Congressional district and Paul Hackett, an Iraq war veteran and Democrat is running aggressively against a corrupt, chickenhawk GOP candidate Jean Schmidt who is trying to "swift-boat" him.

Thanks to the netroots, Paul Hackett has actually been able to beat Schmidt (R-Corrupt Chickenhawk) in fundraising.

Take a minute and visit the Swing State Project where Bob Brigham and Tim Tagaris are blogging this intensively, including links to Hackett's sharp retorts calling the chickenhawks for what they are. General Wesley Clark has stepped in to offer his support and to ask supporters to get as many people to the polls as possible on August 2nd.
