What we're up against


"I want to be Invisible. I do Guerrilla Warfare.

I paint my face and travel at night.

The election is still more than a year away, with incumbent Democrat Mark Taylor vacating the seat to run for governor, but already Reed is raising money and assembling a team.Read more... )
