One look at the tax plan of Democratic Congressional candidate Jon Hulburd and you'd think the guy's a Republican.

Hulburd's plan includes things like extending the Bush tax cuts through 2012, permanently lowering the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 25 percent, and making permanent the current tax rate for capital gains and dividends.

As we said yesterday, it sounds like Hulburd's got himself a copy of the GOP playbook, which, while running for office in a predominately Republican district, isn't a bad thing to have -- even if you're a Democrat.

He also laid out some tough, Republican-y talk about the border while On the Record With Greta Van Susteren. Check it out here.

Hulburd insists he's a Democrat, telling New Times yesterday "I'm definitely a Democrat, I've been a Democrat my whole life."

Despite Hulburd's assertion, we want to know what you think: Is Jon Hulburd a Republican?
