Full disclosure, I was working on a blog in January excoriating Mike Tate for the results of the last election and what he was planning for 2012. I was going to focus on the fact that I felt he has not been focusing on the 1st congressional district. After speaking with John Heckenlively, who ran against Ryan last year, and Marge Krupp, who was Ryan’s opponent in 2008. They both said they got no help from the national party and little help from the state party.

We all know how bad of a representative Paul Ryan (R-Wall St) is. Since Ryan gives his handlers on Wall St. anything they want, he will always have unlimited money for his re-election campaigns.
