Don't Write Off Jesse Jackson Jr. Yet

Lynn Sweet says it's "very premature to write off the political career of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-IL) -- at an undisclosed location getting treated for a serious 'mood disorder.' He has $246,625 in his political warchest as of June 30--a virtually unknown GOP opponent running in a heavily Democratic district with no political cash and a savvy top political strategist -- his wife."

Said GOP nominee Brain Woodworth: "We haven't hit the $5,000 mark yet."

Woodworth has not even raised or spent enough -- $5,000 -- to trigger having to file a report with the Federal Election Commission.
