This post seems to think so. I’ve emailed Nate to see if I can get the press release he refers to…

Uh…No. OK, It appears that the Mallory PR was merely asking Paul to run in OH02 instead of Senate. Nothing new there. The Hackett campaign asked them to retract a statement. I’ll post both PR when I get them. Mallory, btw, is part of the Strickland/Brown streamroller.

Original Mallory release stated:

“I applaud Paul Hackett for making the difficult decision to step out of the race for the US Senate and to step in to the race for the 2nd Congressional District. Paul’s passion and dedication will make him an excellent Congressman for Ohio. It is time for Democrats to come together and focus on providing a clear vision for the future of Ohio and the country.”

Retracted release:

“I encourage Paul Hackett to make the difficult decision to step out of the race for the US Senate and step in to the race for the 2nd Congressional District. Paul’s passion and dedication will make him an excellent Congressman for Ohio. It is time for Democrats to come together and focus on providing a clear vision for the future of Ohio and the country.”

The question then becomes: Was this a mistake or planned event? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Other news: BSB hearing Fingerhut out, which is not surprising. Will Hackett too buckle to the Strickland/Brown machine?

  • this blog isn’t bullshit

    Here is the first draft of the press release:

    ?I applaud Paul Hackett for finally realizing that it is Sherrod Brown’s turn. Paul?s understanding of deference will make him an excellent cog in the ODP machine. It is time for institutional Democrats to come together and focus on helping each of us continue our careers as politicians.?
