Choose your own House race: Ohio's 13th!
The people have spoken!
Before July 4 -- that seems like a very long ago now, doesn't it? -- we asked Fixistas to vote on the House race that you wanted to see featured in its own post in this space.
It wound up as a two-horse race between South Dakota's at-large district and Ohio's 13th district but, thanks to a late surge, the Buckeye State contest between Rep. Betty Sutton (D) and wealthy car dealer Tom Ganley (R) won out.
The race, which was not on anyone's radar screen when the cycle began, has charged up the competitive ranks as Sutton has stumbled on fundraising and Ganley has surged -- thanks in large part to his considerable personal wealth. The Cook Political Report currently ranks it as "lean Democrat" while the Rothenberg Political Report sees it as "Democrat favored".
The National Republican Congressional Committee named Ganley a "Young Gun" -- its moniker for its top-tier candidates -- this morning.
Look for a full take-out on the Sutton-Ganley race in this space soon. And, thanks for your votes.
