Black loans campaign nearly $200,000

Margaret McGurk reports:

Democrat Steve Black geared up for the closing days of the 2nd District Congressional primary race on on Friday by kicking in $195,000 to his own campaign war chest,

The cash infusion puts his total well over a half-million dollars.

The fund ended 2007 with $386,625, according to Federal Election Commission records.

Black's campaign issued a statement Monday saying the contribution would make up for time lost to family responsibilities: "Since the first of the year, Steve’s father was very sick, and passed away in early February. ... While he still campaigned and fundraised over the course of that difficult time, family, not fundraising, was his highest priority."

His Democratic opponent, Victoria Wulsin, reported a total of $490,687 at year-end.

“Just like Jean Schmidt in 2006, Steve Black is using his own money to make up for an inability to connect with the voters,” said Wulsin. “Instead of telling the voters what he’ll do, he’s using Karl Rove’s playbook to smear my name and his family fortune to pay the bill.”

Republican incumbent Rep. Jean Schmidt endedthe year with $379,691. Her GOP opponent Tom Brinkman showed only about $4,800.

All candidates will be required to file updates on recent fundraising in pre-primary reports due on Feb. 21.

How PATHETIC to use your dead father as an excuse for people not donating to your failed campaign !

Maybe he should have used the time he spent designing his failed lit-drop vile to call his gould chest !

What did the wRong wingnut whacko cronies give up on him ?

Can't they throw anymore plush Indian Hill fundraisers ?

The 'black mole' would have earned more credibility if he would have returned his, 'hypocRitical', (CAUV) farm-subsidies off the backs of the hard-working OH-02 voters !

The 'black mole' should have a little talk with O'Riley to find out that $250,000 of your own money can't buy you a seat, ANYWHERE !

While he is throwing away $250,000, perhaps he could donate to the DEMOCRATIC judicial campaign fund ?

No: he is a 'USER' not a leader !

PATHETIC, 'family values' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE WULSIN 2008 !

Why are Steve Black and Tom Brinkman in this race? I could understand if they had a chance of winning, however, they do not.

Vic Wulsin might complain that Black uses his own money like Schmidt, but it has surely worked for her.

The crazy who writes about the "black mole" is Josh Levin, Victoria Wulsin's campaign manager. He's emotionally unstable, as is evident in his ranting.

Victoria Wulsin, the malaria-injecting physician, will lose to Jean Schmidt in November. Wulsin is the Constant Loser.

Typical clueless, wRong wingnut whacko, 'black mole' campaign staff !

If any had been, real Democrats, involved in politics then they would have realized that 'bold endeavors' was 'out-ing' "schmidt'y" candidates long before the Hon. Josh Levin join our next congresswoman's campaign !

Now come on Heidi, that sign on your collar is a HUGE give-away !

PATHETIC 'flip-flopper' !

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE WULSIN 2008 !

Wulin has got to be the foot-tapping Bold Typist's mother. Their facial features are very similar.

Wow, that is insane. Vic will lose the general again this year and that would have left 2010 open for Black to come in. However, he jumped the gun. Taking on Vic right after her once-in-a-lifetime performance against Jean was a losing proposition for Black.

He clearly didn't think this through very well. In life, timing is everything and Black's timing was remarkably poor. If I were his kids, I would be ticked off that my dad just blew 200k of my inheritance.

For a guy who wasn't focused on fundraising, I sure get a lot of e-mails from Steve asking for money.

And phone calls.

And negative mailers about Wulsin.

And he sure brags a lot about how hard he's working.

Which is it Steve? And what about that promise the Ohio Daily Blog says you made about not buying the election?


(FYI, Josh Levin made me write this)

This sort of last-minute infusion is kinda pathetic. It's pretty clear that Black just wants to win - he changed his party after being a lifelong Republican, and now he's trying to buy a primary victory.

Some people just want power and some people actually want to serve others. I think it's pretty clear who's who in this election.

congratulations Steve on supporting the single worst jingle I've heard in a very very long time!
laughably bad.

wRong

Once again the use=less ****ing idiot of the NAZI party (tnp) is more worried about 'bold endeavors' than any contribution to the topic at hand !

No candidate, in their right mind, wants us involved in their campaign !

Additionally, no candidate, in their right mind, wants us against their campaign !

Now, stop your seductive foot-tapping infatuation. No one is interested !

We have them all over the barrel !

PATHETIC 'flip-floppers'

HAD ENOUGH, VOTE WULSIN 2008 !
