2nd Dist. campaign finances

Federal Election Commission reports on campaign finances in the 2nd Congressional District race show Republican incumbent Jean Schmidt has raised a total of $556,578 in this election cycle, and had $176,670 left on March 31.

Democratic challenger Victoria Wulsin raised $771,475 and had $212,410 left.

The reports also showed Stephen Black, who lost the Democratic nomination to Wulsin, raised $641,180, of which he contributed $278,353 himself. The FEC reports show his campaign's cash on hand on March 31 totaled $1,632.

Republican challenger Tom Brinkman raised $149,815 -- including $74,00 of his own money -- and had $1,560 left.

Phil Heimlich, who dropped out of the Republican race race before the primary, raised $367,183, and still has $200,061.

Things look good for Wulsin. But why nothing on the 1st district?

Gee, I wonder what Filthy Phil will use that money for? A Wingnut Welfare sludge fund??

Good luck in the private sector, phil. Time to get a real job.

Maybe because Driehaus raised more money than chabot-head !

We wonder if farmer black will try and recoup his ill-spent personal funds off the backs of tax-payers with reduced property taxes claiming to exclusively engage in commercial farming at his 'green-acres' estate !

Maybe someone should ask dusty and request production of documents that provide proof that 'farmer black' earned $2,500 per year, for the last three years, farming as required when property less than 10 acres is claimed to be exclusive commercial use (CAUV) - (hint: fishwRap) ?

We bet the beacon scoops the 'fishwRap' on another one ?

PATHETIC 'family values' !

Things look good for Wulsin??? LOL
Keep the blinders on, lib. It'll be that much more painful for you later this year.

Wacky Wulsin will get crushed by 15+ points in November. Congresswoman Jean Schmidt can start working on her victory speech right now.

PATHETIC 'HypocRites' !

15 points?? Give us a break wingnut. She nearly won last time, and was defeated by only 2,517 votes out 240,000 votes cast. That's about 1% wingnut, in an non-presidential election year.

If she loses, it will be very close.

Yet more evidence that the people of the 2nd district aren't big Schmidt fans.

Victoria Wulsin will be a great congresswoman!

Steve Black's ad made it clear that Icky Vicky Wulsin hates gays - that's why she conducted unnecessary malaria experiments on them.

I'll post Black ad once I find it on YouTube.

Hey, maybe someone can follow up with the authorities in Virginia and see how much Bouncin Bob McEwen owes from his poorly-run Mike Harlow-managed campaigns. Wonder if the Corpulent Colerainian is still sitting home on his fat as waiting to be paid for driving Bobby's once-promising career into the dumper.

Oh Vic...you've still got so much to learn about. Yes- you may raise more, but Schmidt has the grassroots...and the momentum. I'm pretty sure that Southern Ohio will soon be hearing about "Victoria's Secrets". Vic your a mess, your campaign is a mess, and your values are a mess. Let's get real, and get out of the race Vic.

The words "momentum" and "Republican" aren't going to go together in November.

Bob McEwen ran for U.S. Congress. It doesn't matter where he lives, pretends to live, or whatever, he would have to file with the Federal Elections Commission.

That displays a fundamental ignorance on your part.

Second, you seem to imply that McEwen had all these flaws (bounced checks, residency) but his campaign manager (who wasn't his campaign manager, but you seem to enjoy smearing him anyway) lost the race for him.

To bad we don't have live video blogging, you could give us all lessons in talking out of both sides of your mouth. That has to be entertaining.

Is it me, or is most of Virus Vicky's money coming from the pro-abortion types? Seems that quite a bit of it is from out of state, too.

Does anybody really think that Southern Ohio will elect an abortion-on-demand-up-until-the-actual- moment-that-the-entire-baby-is-completely-out -out-of-the-mother infanticide supporter? Virus Vicky has no ethics.

The quality of the debate on this threat is pathetic. It is ok to discuss the issues but to suggest that Wulsin supports infanticide is insane.

I'm no fan of Wulsin's but I am appalled by the level of your insults. It disgusts me that your vote will count equally as much as mine.

Anti-Choice wingnut wacko 5:57; The majority of Americans, and even 51% of American Catholics, are in favour of a woman's right to choose. Get over it, it's not going to change.

Where's Jim Parker?

at 3:06 PM, April 18, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

As soon as Justice Stevens "retires", President John McCain will appoint a sixth Conservative to the Supreme Court. Then Roe v. Wade is history.

So get those late-term abortions in while you still can, all you baby-killing libs.

Jim Parker isn't running this go-around. He knows that he'll never have the money of the other candidates so he'll have to do it the old fashioned way--knocking on doors and talking to voters.

I hear that is what he is doing now, laying the groundwork for 2010, spreading his message of HEALTHCARE and THE AMERICAN DREAM.

The people of the 2nd district don't care about whose face is on TV more often or who sends more fliers to their house. They care about the candidates who know what is important to them and who know how to say THANK YOU.

In 2006, I supported Dr. Wulsin. It was more out of discontent with the entire Republican party than a vote against Jean Schmidt. Unfortunately, I was not aware of Mrs. Wulsin's past..how do you say...'issues'.

Steve Black's ad led me to do some of my own research, and frankly, I was beyond digusted. The more I look into Dr. Wulsin's past, the more in concerns me. Say what you want about Jean Schmidt, but Wulsin is a certifable nutcase. I suspect that many voters in the Second District will reach that same conclusion in the near future. Wulsin's past is abhorrent, and it's no wonder healthcare is her number one priority. It's all she knows. However, I'm not so sure I want my Member of Congress to be pushing healthcare reform when they've been involved in atrocious human experimentation in the past.

Wulsin has lost this supporter, and I will gladly cast my vote for Jean Schmidt in November. I regret not doing it in 2006.

If you are voting against Wulsin maybe you should look at the Independent candidate in the race...

Don't just vote for Schmidt because you don't like the opposition.

Here's Steve Black's campaign ad about Dr. Wulsin's involvement with Dr. Heimlich's secret AIDS experiments in Africa.
