Zero truth to all the stuff you’ve heard regarding Hackett getting out of the Senate race and getting into the OH02 Congressional race. Zip. Zilch. Nada. I’ve got it from several sources close to the campaign that it is all crap. In fact, it appears to have been all fabricated and leaked out by Rahm Emanuel, which is not surprising given his public statement today.

Expect to hear from the Hackett campaign soon that Paul will remain in the race and expect the rhetoric to heat up in the next few days. Underhanded politics coming out of Chicago? Naw. So see? DCCC meddling after all.

Feeling better about getting my new T-shirt today afterall…

PS – If played right, Hackett will raise a fuckton of money starting tomorrow. This should be fun.
