Open Call for Candidates!

2006 is NOT a year to let Republicans run for office unopposed. We need to field candidates in every race. The filing deadline is Feb. 16. Here is a roundup of races where I have not been able to identify Democratic candidates:

U.S. House of Representatives

The only race with no Democratic candidate is John Boehner's seat, the 8th District, in western Ohio (includes northern Dayton suburbs, Troy, Hamilton, Fairfield). Boehner is known for his suntan, golfing trips, and parties, all involving lobbyists and their money. We simply MUST run an opponent in this race.
