I really hate to quote His Most Unholiness Rev. Jerkymiah Wright but it is fitting.
Mr. Hackett won the primary through a series of slanderous, misleading, and patently false attack ads against Dan Meuser, Pride Mobility, and Pride's employees. Now he is crying his eyes out because Chris Carney is doing the same exact thing to him. Sucks doesn't it, Chris?
Dan Meuser was far and away the stronger, more honorable candidate in the 10TH. I don't say that because he is my friend. I say it because I mean it. Dan never resorted to the slimy tactics of the Hackett campaign and ultimately it cost him his chance to run against Carney. Dan was the only candidate that had a shot of unseating Carney. He had the grassroots support that would've been necessary. Hackett can't even get campaign contributions from the prominent local families. That should tell you all something about him!
Carney is destroying him in literally every poll. I know the poll that really matters will be held on 11-04 but all the local polls have Carney winning huge. I doubt that they are all wrong.
The end result of Mr. Hackett's campaign? Carney will retain the seat and will probably hold it for a very long time. He will not be anywhere near as vulnerable the next time he is up for election. Congratulations Mr. Hackett on your achievement.
