Murtha Wins GOP Primary

Here's an oddity I found among the elections results. John Murtha won the GOP primary.

Ok, this John Murtha has nothing to do with the John Murtha wanting the U.S. to bail out of Iraq. The war probably didn't have any role in that state assembly race. Here's how Wisconsin's John Murtha responded to questions from a local newspaper:

What would your goals be if elected? What would be the main focuses of your term?

Goals: Reduce property tax, affordable health care for working families and good paying jobs for western Wisconsin.

I would focus on maintaining the quality of life in the St. Croix Valley, protecting seniors against excessive costs on prescription drugs and making this a good place to live, work and retire.

No mention of Iraq, which didn't bother me. I don't really give much credence to what either John Murtha thinks about the war.
