Meet Tim Mahoney
Right now every Democrat in the state should be celebrating Howard Dean's fifty state strategy of contesting every congressional district in the country. Not only has lightning struck, it has struck twice. First there was Tom DeLay's vacant seat in TX-22. Now we have FL16 wide open for a shot. This is a shout out for Tim Mahoney, formely Mark Foley's opponent. Since Mr. Foley decided risking suggestionable advances on 16 year old pages was more important than running for Congress Mr. Mahoney suddenly has an excellent shot at picking up a Congressional seat for the Dems. As far as I can tell, the current rules stipulate that Mr. Foley's resignation was to late in the process to have his name removed from the ballot. Though his name will remain any opponent the State GOP can come up with will receive all votes cast for Mr. Foley on the ballot. This seat under Mr. Foley was a sure bet "safe seat." You can now mark this seat "leans Dem." Please visit Tim's web site here. Drop by and throw a few bucks his way. Trust me, it's worth it.
