I disagree with those who think this district is not winnable. Regardless of their opinion those who have announced such publicly do a grave disservice to the voters of this district who deserve a candidate who'll represent them, and not the interests of big business and Wall Street. We have that candidate in Ted Ankrum and are excited that he is running. We will take back Congressional District 10.
