As he demonstrated in the 2005 special election in Ohio\'s 2nd District, Paul Hackett is a Democratic leader with fresh vision and the courage to speak his convictions. He lives by the motto \"lead or get the hell out of the way\" and was about to embark on a statewide bus tour to campaign for Senate. But now that Congressman Sherrod Brown has entered the race after promising not to, the Beltway party establishment is hinting that Hackett should drop out. Hackett is still making up his mind whether or not to stay in the race, so we can send a crucial message to him through this petition: We WILL support you in a primary and we WILL ensure your victory against Mike Dewine. The future of the Democratic leadership, the state of Ohio, and the country hangs in the balance.
