Wolf Opponent Quitting Her Job

Sandhya Somashekhar

Judy Feder, the Democrat who ran unsuccessfully in 2006 against Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.), is quitting her job to focus on her effort to challenge Wolf again next year.

Feder announced yesterday she was stepping down as dean of the Georgetown Public Policy Institute after nine years.

Feder lost solidly to Wolf, a popular incumbent. But she raised $1.6 million for her effort and is hoping to ride the recent tide of Democratic successes in Virginia to victory.

She will face retired U.S. Air Force colonel Mike Turner in the Democratic primary, while Wolf will run against Vern McKinley, a financial consultant, in the Republican primary. It is Wolf's first primary challenge in his 26 years in office.

does she pay herself a salary out of the campaign contributions or is she another ultra-wealthy member of the party of the common man?

no salary needed when you have a campaign slush fund
