57. Marcy has been our Rep since 1983
She was born and educated in Toledo and always gets at least 60+% of the vote if not more. It would be a joke if Joe ran against her.

Ed Emery ran against her in 2002 and lost. He was recently arrested for stealing metal from buildings.

We went to her office in Washington, DC in the 1990's with our daughter. She talked to us for about 20 minutes and was very gracious. She is very trustworthy and honest and this is why she gets elected again and again. She has a big following even among local Republicans.

The 9th District has not had a whole lot of turnover since the 1950's. Lud Ashley was the Democratic Congressman from 1951 until 1981. There was one Republican for one two year term (1981-83) until Marcy was elected, and she has been in ever since.

I can't imagine Joe will have much of a chance to score this congressional seat.
