"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

OH-02 Final Results

US HOUSE Ohio 2nd District
753 precincts of 753 reporting

JEAN SCHMIDT 57,974 52%
PAUL HACKETT 54,401 48%

A little perspective... The OH-02 is extremely Republican. The 2000 and 2004 President elections went to Bush 63-37. The Republican margin in the past four Congressional races averaged 75 to 25 percent.

Words of wisdom from Armando at Daily Kos:
New Ohio Democratic superstar Paul Hackett went into the lion's den of pure Red Southern Ohio and scared the pants off of the GOP losing by less than 4 points in the face of a NRCC promise to "bury him."

No spin - the GOP is on the run.

Congratulations to Southern Ohio Democrats, the Lefty blogs, especially Swing State Project, and Dems everywhere. We have delivered a lesson - Fighting Dems will win the day.
We lost this battle, but the tide has turned.
