Brown postpones announcing intent to challenge DeWine
Rep. Sherrod Brown, D-Lorain, who had intended to announce his candidacy for the U.S. Senate this month, has delayed the official announcement until next month. Speculation is that he wants to see whether Issue 4 passes Nov. 8.
If it does, Brown?s safe congressional district would be redrawn by an independent commission in time for the 2008 elections. If it fails, his seat would remain intact until 2012, all but guaranteeing that he would easily win re-election to the House rather than risk a challenging Sen. Mike DeWine next year.
Joanne Kuebler, a spokeswoman for Brown, said the Issue 4 outcome “has no bearing on Sherrod?s decision.”
Hackett may have bought an RV, but it sounds like the Brown campaign’s wheels are coming off. I mean come on. Your backers have worked really hard to defend you against the flip of the flippety floppety in your race entry, then you pull this! Maybe Democracy Guy is right when he says the Brown campaign is in chaos.
