Video: The First Lady Comes to Ohio 18
In their wrap-up of Day 7 of the Ohio River Ramble, Chris Cillizza and Jim VandeHei discuss the race in Ohio's 18th District, where Joy Padgett (R) and Zack Space (D) are running to fill the seat being vacated by Rep. Bob Ney.
Ohio Republicans are facing a tough fight in the races for governor and U.S. Senate this year. But the GOP's statewide problems aren't necessarily a factor in the 18th, in part because the Republican candidate remains popular in a district that President Bush carried easily in 2004. Another GOP plus: First Lady Laura Bush was in Ohio to help the party raise big money for the final weeks of campaign 2006.
