Black concedes defeat

From Cliff Peale:

Steve Black has conceded defeat in the 2nd Congressional District Democratic primary. A little while ago, he told about 30 friends, family and supporters that he had called Democratic opponent Victoria Wulsin to congratulate her.
"At this point, all we can do is hope and pray that the Democratic party will prevail this fall, both at the presidential level and the congressional level," he said.
Black said earlier in the evening that he was confident the Democrats can beat Republican incumbent Jean Schmidt.

After all that he did to kill Wulsin?!?!?! He should be ashamed. It wasn't as though he just ran a clean, aggressive campaign, he threw first-class mud. Good riddance, Steve Black.

Jim Parker KNOWS HEALTHCARE. Jim Parker KNOWS AMERICA. Jim Parker KNOWS Ohio. Steve Black messed up by not getting Jim Parker's endorsement. If Black would have taken the time to meet with Parker, he may have stood a chance in this one.

Vote Jim Parker 2010!

What? Or we can get out an work our butts off. And if we do win in November, it will be no thanks to you, Mr. Black.

Well, since the failure blew $250,000 how about injecting his fair share of 'property tax' ?

So can Steve Black go back to the Republicans now? What a disgrace that the Dems didn't endorse their own Vic Wulsin from the start. Remember when the next Mayoral race comes around that the Dems don't endorse in a primary. Let's hold them to it.

What a scumbag loser. The only message he put out during the campaign was to dis Victoria. He's as bad if not worse than the typical republican scum.

If we work hard, we won't just beat the Repug scum, we will put that organization out of business.
