Citizen Hackett



If at first you don't succeed, run for Senate:
Paul Hackett, a Democratic veteran of the Iraq war who narrowly lost a special election in a heavily Republican congressional district in August, made his official entry into a U.S. Senate race MondayMonday.

He faces a tough Democratic primary with Rep. Sherrod Brown in the race for the nomination to challenge second-term Republican incumbent Sen. Mike DeWine next year.

Hackett's only political experience is a stint as a small-city councilman.

"I think the obvious difference between myself and Sherrod Brown and Mike DeWine (is) I'm not a career politician. At best, I'm a citizen legislator," Hackett said.

Comments:
I'm wishing he ran as as his own man, no party at all.

Time for real civil servants without any political baggage attached. If this country is to survive as a free democracy.

First, we call lobbyists what they are: Influence Peddlers buying away the best interests of the nation for their own greedy objectives.

Time to outlaw them.

Let's start with no strings attached Senators.

Go Paul go.
