Most party pros believe that campaigns are won or lost on money infused into a given campaign.

In the close Boccieri/Schuring race, could money actually be the difference?

If such is the case, then Boccieri has the best reserve to draw from. keeps track of how much money is available to the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) and the RNCC (Republican National Congressional Committee). Here the Democrats have a $9 to $1 advantage.

So come mid-October Stark Countians should probably expect more of Boccieri than Schuring on the air waves, in the mail boxes and other mediums through which political candidates communicate their messages.

Democrats have a double incentive in the 16th. This seat has been held by Republicans forever. And, Democrats want very much to increase their majorities so that they can legislate without Republican support.

The STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) believes that this money difference could end up being the difference in this race.

What do you think is the difference? $$$$? or the candidates positions on the issues?
