Hackett's In For Ohio Senate Run
Damn the liberal bloggers, full speed ahead
!Hackett's strong showing in a state that was a pivotal presidential battleground solidified the attorney as a likely 2006 candidate for Congress or statewide office.
After Hackett decided to oppose DeWine, Hackett was irked when Brown, with three decades of elective politics behind him, decided he also would run.
Brown, a former state legislator and Ohio secretary of state, is in his seventh congressional term, representing northeastern Ohio's 13th District. He's expected to officially launch his Senate race in early November.
I kinda hope that Brown beats Hackett; I'd rather we face a liberal Democrat (lifetime ACU Rating
: 9) than Hackett, who's got some good moderate credentials/positions. I'd also like to see a primary challenge to incumbent Republican Mike DeWine.
