Feder Building Campaign Warchest

Steve Fehr

Judy Feder, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for Congress in the 10th District, announced today she raised $600,000 in 2007, including almost $250,000 during the last three months of the year.

Feder, a professor at Georgetown, is trying to unseat Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) for the second time. Mike Turner also has filed as a Democratic candidate. The primary is June 10.

Although Wolf easily defeated her In 2006, Feder proved herself to be a proficient fundraiser, having raised over $1.6 million for that campaign

It really would not matter how much Feder raised, she is perhaps the most unelectable politician in our great commonwealth.

Come on now, no one who has made her living pushing Hillary's mandatory (you coudl be a criminal if you don't sign up) socialized medicine plan can get elected in a moderate-conservative district. No borderline-socialist can get elected in this district. Feder is about as far left off the deep end as you go. This kind of candidate could actually hurt Mark Warner's chances in the 10th.

DC doesn't need any more representatives.

Ah, I see the trolls have showed up to spew the standard talking points: Socialist, liberal!

Seriously, it's ridiculous. Judy's position's are relatively moderate, perhaps more progressive than some, but hardly liberal.

The talking point I really love is the one about how Judy might actually hurt Warner's candidacy. what idiot came up with that talking point?

Though, if that's the line of thinking, I suppose maybe we should wonder aloud if, hmmm, George Bush might do some damage to Wolf's candidacy?

For those who claim Judy is a socialist, lefty liberal, I'd like to see some evidence.

By the way, that "socialize medicine plan" you're talking about. Yeah, it's pretty much the standard for every Dem running for president (including the moderate Edwards) and it's pretty much the reason the Democrats are kicking the ass of every Republican candidate in every poll known to man kind.

An overwhelming majority of Americans support universal healthcare, it's not even a question anymore...so good luck with that talking point in Nov.

Evidence that Feder is liberal? How about Hillarycare to start. Mandatory forced socialized medicine? I guess you have never had to hear Feder's talking points...

"An overwhelming majority of Americans support universal healthcare"....Ha,Ha,Ha, very funny. Only the extreme socialist liberals support mandatory government run socialized medicine.

Feder is far and away the most liberal candidate in D.C. oh I mean Virginia. No borderline socialist liberal college professor candidate will win in a moderate district. What a waste of time!

I'm sure DC has more socialist representatives, but do they really deserve another?
