Dem Party leaders push Hackett out of Senate race

This is a shame. Iraq war veteran Paul Hackett has dropped out of the race for US Senate in Ohio.

Hackett cited Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other party leaders as the reason he pulled out of the running for the seat. Last year, he came amazingly close to unseating Republican Rep. Jean Schmidt in a district that is overwhelmingly Republican. Even for those who think Rep. Sherrod Brown is the superior candidate for the seat, this is unfortunate.

The people of Ohio would have had a choice in who their Democratic candidate would be had Hackett stayed in. Now that decision has been made for them by the party bosses.
