      Chabot Has Shot At Taking Back Seat

      The Democratic wave that swept in Steve Driehaus over incumbent Republican Steve Chabot in 2008 has a strong chance of being reversed this year. Chabot, who first came to Congress in the Class of '94, was often targeted by the Democrats for being too conservative, but he always survived -- until two years ago. Driehaus has been on the defensive for his vote in favor of the heath care plan, and Chabot is focusing on that in his effort to return to Congress. -Ken Rudin
