OH-Sen: Paul Hackett to "Run Again"

Posted by Bob Brigham

A little wink-wink, nod-nod on for which office:

Former Congressional candidate Paul Hackett was also warmly received by the Democrats. Hackett announced, "I will run again." But he didn't know exactly what he will be running for – he has been rumored to be considering a run for U.S. senate.

At this point, the only question about a senate bid seems to be, "When?"

“Senator Hackett, it’s got a nice ring to it,” Hackett said in a recent interview.

Hackett is a bigger tease than my first girlfriend. Where's the money shot??

Speaking of money, that article says he received contributions from citizens in each of the 50 states. Can he realistically expect to tap into that type of support for midterm elections? It was easy to rally behind him during a special election because nothing else was going on at the time (except PFAW badgering me for money to oppose Roberts' nomination).

He won't need to worry about relying on the same fundraising base, although he'll have some of that support. He's now got name recognition, credibility, and he'll have DSCC support.

Fundraising will be relatively easy for him. He's a proven candidate running against a guy whose negatives are absolutely stellar.
