That was brilliant to schedule this event when the actual sitting Congressmen (Chabot and Schmidt)are either still in Washington, or in transit.

Too bad CincyPAC didn't think to give people attending the courtesy to ask their representative questions directly.

But I find it curious that the Democrat candidates will be there in person.

I'm sure it's nothing more than a coincidence and poor planning.

What about the non-party candidate David Krikorian in the 2nd Congressional District?

I'm sure he'll be able to make it, if he gets invited.

And all that hard work being done in DC just so gas prices can raise even higher. Now that is a legacy that Chabot, Schmidt and George W should be proud of!

I doubt Cincy Pac will let anyone ask Stevie D. about his Girls Gone Wild escapades...when will the media do a story?

According to this blog, http://frontier.cincinnati.com/blogs/gov/2008/02/cincypac-invites-congressional.asp
the event was originally scheduled for 2/21 -- when the House was on a break. I believe that neither Chabot nor Schmidt thought it worth their time. Scheduling conflicts happen frequently. I am certain that the incumbents can send staff members as surrogates. Should Chabot give Driehaus an opportunity to speak at his tax-payer funded town hall events?

Why should either Chabot or Schmidt show up? They're running against a couple of losers with zero chance of beating them. Let Driphaus and Wacky Wulsin talk to the empty room.

I talked to David Krikorian today, he'll be there tomorrow.
Not sure why his names not listed, maybe because his name wasn't "officially" on the ballot when it was originally scheduled.

Jim Parker will be there. We've checked with his scheduler.

Is he running against Jean Schmidt or is he running for US Senate? I can't tell but he has been going to every corner of the State for months.

Hmmm... 2/21... I think the half-foot of snow we got that day might have played a role in re-scheduling the event.

I look forward to attending the event and applaud CincyPAC for trying to involve more young professionals.

As for any conspiracy that certain candidates were not invited- that's a bunch of BS- CincyPAC is non-partisan. Members include Republicans, Democrats and Charterites.

No doubt time well spent, seeing as how influential, organized, well-funded and effective CincyPAC was last election season.
