“Ney gets higher on our list every day.”

Who's in the crosshairs in 2006 for those watching the ethics charges closely? Our old pal Bob Ney!

According to The Hill, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee already is developing strategies around several high-profile local congressional races using the Republican's ethics problems:
Several Democratic lawmakers and aides said that Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio) will be the first target of this new strategy.

“There’s no doubt that we’ll be going after Ney on ethics,” a knowledgeable lawmaker said. “There will be other races like Ney’s as well. It’s fair to say that ethics is going to be a national issue in this campaign.”

Another lawmaker said, “Ney gets higher on our list every day."

Admittedly, this is easier said than done. Ney won his seat with 65+ percent of the vote, so the DCCC better come up with someone better than token opposition, and a ground game to match. The candidate may be the easy part:
We have a strong Democrat bench out there, including the former Senate minority leader from New Philadelphia, Greg Didinato[sic], and State Rep. John Boccieri from New Middletown.”
