I’m a bit puzzled by the unionists sent to Arkansas-2 for a race not widely believed to be competitive. On the other hand, the 21-man army in Ohio-13 suggests someone is very afraid for Rep. Betty Sutton, D.

Dr. Nan Hayworth, the Republican who leads Rep. John Hall, D-N.Y., in at least one poll, is getting a six-figure boost from her professional colleagues.

OH-1

  • Working America pays 17 campaign workers to support Rep. Steve Driehaus, D.

OH-13

  • Working America pays 21 campaign workers to support Rep. Betty Sutton, D.

NM-1:

  • Working America pays 11 campaign workers to support Rep. Martin Heinrich, D.

NY-19:

MI-7:

  • Working America pays 9 campaign workers to support Rep. Mark Schauer, D.
