Tom Cole, Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said:
I would like to congratulate Congressman-elect Bob Latta on his victory in the special election in Ohio?s Fifth Congressional District. This campaign became a cause c?l?bre for national Democrats and liberal activists nationwide, but in the end, Bob?s anti-illegal immigration, anti-tax hike message won the day.
The people of Ohio?s Fifth Congressional District elected a representative in Bob Latta who will stand up for their values in Washington. Bob?s proven dedication to his constituents will enable him to be a very effective representative, as he fills the shoes of the late Congressman Paul Gillmor in the same seat that Bob?s father once held. I look forward to serving with Bob Latta in the House of Representatives.
What he meant:
Holy fucking shit! I just spent nearly $500,000 defending a R+10 Congressional district in Ohio? And we still didn’t get a true conservative? Damnit! This is not a sustainable model at all here.
Not sustainable at all Tom. Not sustainable at all…
