Iraq Vet to Challenge Reichert in the 8th
Well, not yet. But I think it’s a great idea. Ever since Paul Hackett almost took out a Republican in Ohio’s heavily-Republican 2nd District, the DCCC has been spooging over the idea of Iraq Vets as candidates. An Iraq Vet candidate in the 8th District (the East Side) would likely get a lot of national DCCC money to take out Reichert.
So, here’s the deal. Back in June 2004, I did a column on an Iraq vet that I met while reporting on a Kerry meetup in a basement conference room at a Doubletree hotel in Bellevue. This Dem Iraq vet took the floor and captivated the room.
His name was Chris Kashfia. He was charismatic, well-spoken, macho, handsome, and 27-years-old. (Old enough to be a member of Congress.)
Chris Kashfia, if you are out there, or if anyone out there reading the SLOG knows how to find Chris Kashfia, tell him he should run against Reichert.
