Charlie Wilson’s War
by

Democrat Charlie Wilson won his primary race in Ohio’s 6th Congressional district as a write-in candidate on the backs of more than $1 million in Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee funds and more then $1.5 million in AFL-CIO money being poured into the district.

Wilson himself spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to get out enough votes to win. By AFL-CIO estimates, labor loaned Wilson more than 300 volunteers to get Wilson into the November election. In total, more than $3 million was spent to get Wilson on the ballot. This show just how desperate Democrats are to take a chunk out of the Republican majority. But it also shows the silly lengths they are willing to go. That’s two million bucks more than the Democrats should have had to spend to get their boy on the ballot.

This election cycle is going to be fun to watch. Especially if you’re in a business that makes money off of campaigns.
