VIC WULSIN BEAT REPUBLICAN-IN-DEMOCRAT CLOTHES IN OH-02

>


In 2006 Dr. Victoria Wulsin nearly beat the deranged extreme right wing incumbent Mean Jean Schmidt, less than 3,000 votes separating them out of over 237,000 cast in the deeply red district. Vic is set to run against Schmidt again-- and send her into retirement-- but she needed to beat, Stephen Black, a life-long Republican who decided to "switch" to the Democratic Party rather than challenge Schmidt in the Republican primary. His vicious Rovian campaign-- run by Rahm Emanuel lieutenant, John Lapp-- was classic smear, attacking Vic on her strongest attributes and just piling on slander and innuendo, in one ad insinuating that she injected people with AIDS.

This is what happens when we encourage Republicrap to come into our party. In the end I saw Black purposely smearing Vic so badly as to make it more difficult for her to take on Schmidt, although he never had any realistic chance to win the primary himself.

With over 72% of the precincts in OH-02 counted, Vic beat him in every county. So far 45,000 Democrats have voted in the congressional primary, while 32,000 have voted in the GOP primary (which was also contested-- Schmidt getting 56.72% of them). On the presidential level in OH-02, 46,000 Democrats and 34,000 Republicans voted, One of the most corrupt counties in America-- when it comes to voters fraud-- Clermont (which has a sordid history of just making up election results) hasn't reported any precincts yet, as is their custom. Like Vic, Schmidt beat her two opponents in every other county.


UPDATE: BLACK CONCEDES

Clermont County is in and Vic won there too-- same margin as everywhere else. She not only beat Black in every county; she beat Mean Jean in every county! “The voters rejected the kind of negative tactics my opponent used, and they trust me to represent them,” said Wulsin. “The message is clear-– the people of Southern Ohio want a representative who will put their families first. Jean Schmidt has voted against the interests of this district time and again. From health care for children to veterans issues, student loans and more, Jean Schmidt has stood with President Bush. The voters want a representative who will listen to them, and that’s what I’ll do.”

Vic joins us tomorrow at Firedoglake at 3pm (est); noon (PT). Now she needs to get busy to beat Mean Jean. If you want to help... here's the place

Wonderful news, Howie!

Thank you so much for "introducing" me to Vic Wulsin. I hope she'll come by for another Saturday chat soon.
