Skip to comments.Seventh District race gets dirty [Carson, IN-07]
Posted on 11/03/2006 9:41:53 AM PST by Coop
Indianapolis - For the first time in a decade, Congresswoman Julia Carson is in a tough race for re-election. Her campaign started running a batch of positive image ads on the same day National Democrats go after her Republican opponent with the gloves off.
Her yard signs sell love, but there is no love in fliers hitting some 7th District mail boxes attacking Congresswoman Julia Carson's opponent.
"I'm absolutely shocked and appalled," says Republic Eric Dickerson.
The ads were done by the National Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Washington and not by Congresswoman Carson. Carson told Eyewitness News "I'm outraged by it."
One mailer we were given reads: "What's worse? A candidate for congress who beats his wife, bites his kid, and goes to jail or a candidate who lies about it? Eric Dickerson was accused of doing both."

This cant be true because only rats are running vets for congress and no rats are in a tough fight
If they're covering it, she's in trouble. Carson, Barrow, Marshall, and Bean are four Dem seats we will pick up. There are others starting to fall. Stay tuned.
The Dems are starting to take notice.
Sounds good to me
Well now I have this bridge in CA, anyone wanna buy it?
How to interpret headlines by the MSM...
If the headline claims a fight is getting dirty... that means the Republican is pulling ahead.
If the headline claims the campaign is going strong..that means the Democrat is ahead.
When Pres Bush or Laura campaign for a candidate, they are "showing desperation"
When Clinton campaigns for a candidate, they are "showing support"
You know what a Marine calls a situation where you have 500 in your company and you're surrounded by 5000 enemy troops? "A Fair Fight".
Eric will be on WTHR-13 at 7:30 AM Sunday.
Yes, I would still rate Irey as an underdog. But not by much.
Being an Indy residents I know that an even contest isn't enough. Eric will have to win the real vote by 8-10% to overcome Miss Julia's voter fraud.
Hopefully your new voter ID requirement cuts down significantly on said fraud. Keep the faith!
Semper Fi bump!
Yup.....sure love those Marines!!!!!
Absolutely fabulous news!!!!!! We don't get any news from the rest of the state down here. All we hear is how WONDERFUL Brad Ellsworth is from the newspapers and TV. I sooooooooooo want Hostettler to win, just to see them all sulk, pout and cry that somehow it was stolen.
Yeah, I'm worried about Hostettler. His numbers pretty much stink given that his district went 61% for Dubya two years ago. But he's still fighting!
I"ve donated to her campaign also. I told the RNC that I'd only donate to specific candidates this year, they kept calling and calling for money. I told the caller that when the RNC grew a pair and found their spine, I'd contribute to the party, otherwise, I'd support individuals. They haven't called me back :)
Good for you! Thanks for supporting Diana and Eric - two scrappy underdogs that just might pull the upsets. I'm gonna ping you to some pictures you might enjoy. :-)
Just got off the phone with my cousin. We don't usually talk politics. She brought it up this time She' been talking to the neighbors....Many had voted for JC in the past. They won't be this time...Her comment. "Julia is old and sick....Why is she even running?.....She should just come home to die!"
