Sulzer to Take on Bob Ney in OH-18

It has become evident that Joe Sulzer will be the Democratic Nominee in OH-18 to take on Bob Ney and I call on Zack Space to resign and save the party a costly primary.
It has become clear that Joe Sulzer is not only the DCCC but also the ODP and in district choice to take on Bob Ney. Some of Space's supporters have been trying to muddy the waters as seen here but the reality is Sulzer is going to win this campaign hands down.
A quick summary from the last FEC filings.
In this period alone Joe has raised 170696.08
Cash on hand this period is 222418.01
Contributors include: Attorneys, small business owners, elected officials, nurses, and farmers. In fact about 64% of Joe's money comes from the OH-18 District. However, Joe has also received contributions to his campaign from other candidate committees such as Congressman Rahm Emanuel, Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Congressman Tim Ryan. In addition to all this Joe has also received contributions from local candidate committees such as the Nichols for Sheriff Committee. Joe's finance report also gives credibility to the rumor that Sulzer has the backing of the Democratic Party, inferred mostly by the contributions from OPD Chair Redfurn, DCCC Chair Emanuel and Leader Pelosi whose PAC contributed 10, 000.00 in December. Joe has also received contributions from the United Steelworkers PAC.
In this period Zack Space has raised: 74207.49
Cash on hand this period is 69001.11
Debts owed: 15,450.00.... labeled in the filing as "photocopier lease" Damn that must be a ridiculously amazing copier.... Please notice the 15 THEN the comma.
After seeing that, I again call on Zack Space to pull out of the primary so that we can focus on taking back the House for Dems, not fighting each other, in primaries with inevitable conclusions.
