"The Schwarz Factor"
Without a doubt, Congressman Joe Schwarz is well-qualified for his position and reflects the values and views of his district fairly well. But Congressman Schwarz isn't on the ballot this year, having been defeated by far-right extremist Tim Walberg.
Despite his claims of a large victory, Walberg won narrowly in a low-turnout primary. So where will all of the Schwarz voters go on November 7th?
The Jackson Citizen Patriot asks that question in today's issue.
Moderates don't have a place in the modern Republican Party. Ask Jim Webb, Ronald Reagan's Secretary of the Navy, who's running for Senate in Virginia as a Democrat. Ask Jim Marcinkowski, a former Republican who's running for the House in the 8th District as a Democrat. Ask Gil Ziegler, a former Republican candidate for Congress in the 1st District, who founded Republicans for Granholm.
And then ask Congressman Joe Schwarz about the place of moderates in the modern Republican Party.
The article continues:
A woman of good character. Fairly moderate. In politics these days, that's about as close as you can get to a Republican endorsing a Democrat.
The 7th District is not as conservative as Tim Walberg might wish, and we've had the good fortune of being represented by a genuine moderate for the last two years. Shouldn't we continue that trend?

This is awesome!!!! I really think she might pull it off but again as you stated not a lot of people heard of her....but then again nobody's really heard of Timmy either. Wish the best of luck of 11/07/06 and for the love of God people go and vote. Also I wonder who this gay sex thing with the evangelist preacher is going to effect the conservative vote.
Great op-ed from the Toledo Blade:
Schwarz expects that he'll run against Renier in a couple years, which is the only reason he doesn't endorse her.
Welcome moderate in Dexter glad to know that you are here. Please dont forget to vote. I read the link to the Toledo, Renier owes the DNC nothing!!!!!!!! They gave nothing to her and in fact, if I was here I probably would just switch party if she does win which by the way is a long shot but still possible.Post a Comment
