Hackett campaign breaking into the national news

Ohio's own District 02 congresssional candidate Paul Hackett will be a guest on Al Franken's Air America Radio show on Friday at approximately 12:30 pm (EST).

Hackett is also featured in a nice feature story in Newsday:
A few months ago, Paul Hackett was flushing out insurgents and avoiding ambushes in Fallujah, Ramadi and other hotspots in the Iraq War. Today, the Marine is trying to round up votes in small southern Ohio towns like this one.

[. . .]

Launching into a 15-hour day of campaigning, Hackett scoffed as he recalled someone telling him how hard the campaign life was: "I get to see my family at home every night; that's better than being in Iraq. The potshots I take .... are better than the potshots in Iraq."
