Ted Strickland is the ultimate dirty player. After what they did to Ken Blackwell last election, Kasich has his hands full.
“...the industrial Midwest is the measure of success or failure for the Republican Party,”
This is why I have been a fan of Rep. Paul Ryan (WI) in 2012.
WaPo is setting up a red herring. Michigan and Illinois will be easily won by the Dems because any Republicans with an iota of brains have already fled. After they win (regardless of how much cheating they have to do), the media will come back with “See? The Democrats are still popular. Obama is still popular. The Tea Parties are overrated. blah, blah, blah”. The Left will set up a straw dog and then use it to discourage conservatives.
Watch Oregon’s Gubenatorial Race......we have not had a GOP Guv in 25 years.....and I think we might....in November.
