Casualties Mount in War on Bush
IMAO explains the numbers.
It looks like another one bit the dust today…
The popular Ohio Democrat, (the one who just lost his race a few months back), has withdrawn from the Ohio Senate race and is leaving politics altogether as a result of pressure from party leaders.
“This is an extremely disappointing decision that I feel has been forced on me,” said Mr. Hackett, whose announcement comes two days before the state’s filing deadline for candidates. He said he was outraged to learn that party leaders were calling his donors and asking them to stop giving and said he would not enter the Second District Congressional race.
Quitting politics altogether?… It sounds like the popular Ohio Democrat is also a sensitive Ohio Democrat.
“…His own party leaders were calling his donors and asking them to stop giving.”
Captain’s Quarters adds:
Hackett, who once said that GOP leaders had a lot in common with Osama bin Laden, now finds out that Democratic leaders have a lot in common with Machiavelli.
