Not a good day for Abramoff investigation whipping boy, Rep. Bob Ney (R-OH). He’s winning his primary handily tonight. But as Justin Rood reported this afternoon at TPMmuckraker, his challenger apparently raised less than $5,000, isn’t known in the district and hasn’t even campaigned.
Justin talked to Greg Giroux of CQ who said he’d “be surprised if [Ney’s penny-ante opponent] got more than 20 or 25 percent.”
With 61% of the precincts now reporting, Ney’s opponent, James Broadbelt Harris, has 33% of the vote.
