It was the third of four stops for Hill during a two-day opening blitz of the 9th District, and his remarks were similar to those he made in Bloomington yesterday, as reported here:
Hill will challenge Sodrel in '06; Democrat looks to retake 9th District, by Lesley Stedman Weidenbener (short shelf life for Courier-Journal links).
During question and answer time, NA Confidential asked Hill how he plans to remain on task with a promised campaign of issues while on the receiving end of what is expected to be a ceaseless negative campaign bombardment financed by Sodrel’s nationally funded, right-wing GOP sycophants – a phenomenon that assisted in Hill’s downfall in the 2004 election.
“I’m going to be aggressive,” he replied to spontaneous and sustained applause.
Let's hope that Baron Hill follows through on this promise. The 9th District does not need a representative who "votes with Tom DeLay 99% of the time."
