The race in the 8th district is getting pretty crazy between the incumbent John Hostettler (R) and the challenger Brad Ellsworth (D).
They have been trying to paint Ellsworth as a liberal and failed. Now there attack ads have gone the other way. They say the election is not about what kind of candidate Ellsworth is, but rather what kind of candidates Hill Clinton and N.Polosi are? Because a vote for Ellsworth is the same as voting for liberal democrats.
Politics truly is a dirty game. No wonder many Americans are just fed up with them all.
Waiting to see how the spin machine somehow attacks the Ellsworth pledge.
National debt these days is $8.4 trillion. Vanderburgh County Sheriff Brad Ellsworth says it increases over $1.5 billion per day. With the national debt growing, congressional salaries have increased too! The increase in pay is something Ellsworth is willing to forego and donate if elected.
"I wanna pledge today that I will vote to block any pay raise for the United States Congress until such a time that the budget is balanced," said Brad Ellsworth, (D) Congressional Candidate.
Ellsworth went on to say if elected and still can't prevent a pay raise, he pledges to donate any pay raise Congress may receive to a deserving charity in the 8th district.
