Schmidt Wins 2nd District Special Election!

Ohio Republican Jean Schmidt destroyed the Democratic challenger Paul Hackett to win Tuesday's Second Congressional District special election. She won by a margin of 52%. Earlier the Democrats hinted at a landslide by Hackett, which would indicate Democrats were on the upswing back to power.

So much for Liberal values winning votes!

The election was to replace Congressman Rob Portman who was appointed by President Bush as the US Trade Representative.

Congrats Jean!
