Schwarz not irked by attacks

So far, U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz isn't bothered by the streaming attacks he's getting from his Republican primary challenger and Democrats.
"It's a perpetual-motion machine of looking for an issue, and they really haven't found one yet," Schwarz told the Battle Creek Enquirer's Andy Rathbun for a recent story.
Schwarz's challenger, Tim Walberg of Tipton, continues to talk about how 72 percent of voters did not vote for Schwarz in 2004 when he won a six-man primary, gaining 28 percent of the vote. Walberg had 17 percent of the vote that year.
"That 72 percent is my fishing hole," Walberg told the Battle Creek Enquirer.
Democratic congressional candidate Chuck Ream kicked off his campaign in Hillsdale on Monday by taking more shots at Schwarz than his opponents, Fred Strack, Darly Campbell and Sharon Renier.
"My opponent in the seventh district thinks we should stay in Iraq for up to 50 years if necessary," Ream said of Schwarz.
It remains unclear where Ream, who advocates impeaching President Bush, is getting his information.
Pundits say if Walberg won the primary, he would be lucky to win the general election.
