Voters don't go to the polls for nearly three months, but if financial reports are any indication, the 10th Congressional District rematch between former Democrat Judy Feder and Republican Rep. Frank Wolf could well be a nip-and-tuck affair.
Feder, a former dean of Georgetown University's Public Policy Institute, is running in a virtual financial dead heat with Wolf, a 14-term incumbent.
Wolf raised the most during the second quarter of 2008, logging just over $201,000 in contributions. But Feder was close on his heels, taking in just over $200,000.
As Feder campaign manager Luke McFarland says, "Anyone who thinks this is just going to be a replay of 2006 is kidding themselves...We're raising more money, we've got a much stronger base of support and this district is ready for change in 2008."
So there you have it. As much as the Wolf team and its allies want to diminish the serious challenged posed by Judy Feder to Wolf's multi-decade tenure in Congress, this year could mark the end of Wolf's "moderate Republican" charade and his replacement with someone who will actually be in touch with the rapidly changing 10th congressional district. But, as the NVDaily.com article points out, this race is going to be "nip-and-tuck," so if you want change in the 10th, please help Judy by contributing to her campaign, by making calls, or by volunteering in any other way. Thanks, and go Judy!
