Wulsin's official victory statement

Victoria Wulsin's campaign issued a formal victory statement around 12:30 a.m., about two hours after the candidate claimed the win to a gathering of supporters. (It quotes poll results from around that time, when 70 percent of precincts were in. With 98 percent of precincts in, vote totals are 54,540 for Wulsin and 27,244 for Black.) Here's what it says:

Dr. Victoria Wulsin declared victory tonight at 10:25, showing decisive majorities across all seven counties of the Second District. Minutes later, her opponent, Steve Black, called to concede.
With 70% of precincts reporting, Wulsin had won 38,665 votes to 31,927 for Schmidt. Wulsin’s margin over her nearest opponent was significantly wider – 17,652 to 11,498.
“The voters rejected the kind of negative tactics my opponent used, and they trust me to represent them,” said Wulsin. “The message is clear – the people of Southern Ohio want a representative who will put their families first.”
Wulsin quickly turned her attention to Schmidt, signaling a tough campaign to come. “Jean Schmidt has voted against the interests of this district time and again,” said Wulsin. “From health care for children to veterans issues, student loans and more, Jean Schmidt has stood with President Bush. The voters want a representative who will listen to them, and that’s what I’ll do."

I have seen Vic Wulsin speak on several occasions and am convinced that she will be a terrific representative of our district's interests in Congress. The general election will be tough but I am confident the voters will develop even more confidence that she will put our families' first.

“The voters rejected the kind of negative tactics my opponent used, and they trust me to represent them,” said Wulsin

Then she goes on to say: “Jean Schmidt has voted against the interests of this district time and again,” said Wulsin. “From health care for children to veterans issues, student loans and more, Jean Schmidt has stood with President Bush.

Talking out of both sides of her mouth...nice. Its gonna be a long road to November if it is already like this, ugh.

Wulsin wants to put families first -- at least those that are not aborted first.

The voters expressed their obvious disgust with the GOP by voting Democrat in record numbers. november can't get here soon enough. The Repugs aren't just going to lose big... they are going to go out of business.

She should have thanked Jim Parker for all of the ground work he did back in 2006. If she doesn't think that laid the groundwork for the Dems in the East that she is delusional.

Vote Jim Parker 2010!

Vic Wulsin is a terribly flawed candidate. She and Jean Schmidt have made this Congressional District the laughingstock of the country. The prospect of a Wulsin/Schmidt rematch caused Stuart Rothenberg to call OH02 "the worst Congressional contest I've ever witnessed."

Rothenberg goes on to say:

"But for a candidate running for the third time, Wulsin is, to put it mildly, scattered in her thinking. For example, she's an anti-war candidate who says that she isn't sure how she would have voted on the supplemental spending bill that has funded the war.

Wulsin ran a TV spot last month in which she pledged, "As your Representative, I will refuse Congressional health care until Congress does its job and passes affordable health care for all."
Sounds like quite a sacrifice, doesn't it? Of course, it isn't, since Wulsin is covered under her husband's "gold-plated" health care plan. When I asked her about this, she talked about the symbolism of her stand and the fact that Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) made the same pledge previously.

Then, toward the end of the interview, with half a dozen other reporters present, Wulsin referred to her son as "a nice liberal, like his mother." Hmmm.

When asked about that comment, Wulsin went through a lengthy verbal contortion to try to explain that she really is both conservative and liberal. "What I mean by [liberal]," said the pro-abortion rights Democrat at one point, "is that I want change."

But what, asked a reporter, did she mean when she said that she was conservative on family issues? "I think marriage is great. I think motherhood and fatherhood is great," she explained.

What about gay marriage? "I don't think that the federal government should tell any church what to do or who to marry. I'm all for equal rights," said Wulsin, digging herself deeper.

Anyway, Wulsin might well get elected to Congress. But if she does, it's only because of Schmidt."

Wulsin is scattered in her thinking, ethically challenged and unable to put together a campaign strong enough to beat the weakest Republican Congressional Representative in the US. It is a sad state of affairs when our country has so many difficult problems, and we may have to face the prospect of such a pathetic choice between Wulsin and Schmidt to represent us.

Malaria Victoria will lose again, this time by 6-8 points. When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn?

Wacky Wulsin is also known as 'Icky Vicky' by those AIDS patients she conducts unnecessary experiments on.
