A Rejection of Racial/Religious Politics- Steve Cohen vs. Nikki Tinker
Winning with nearly 80% of the vote, Cohen sent a loud and clear message: racial politics will not be tolerated in 2008. Tinker (Black) ran ads linking Cohen (White/Jewish) to the KKK and referencing his religion (again, Jewish). She added a new chapter to the book of dirty campaigning.
Her hopeful exit from politics is a hopeful sign for the future.
Cohen will continue to represent the entire 9th district.... every citizen, no matter his/her religious, ethnic, sex, sexual orientation, or race.
