  •  Wrong about Ohio — lean D (6+ / 0-)

    Kasich's so-called "recovery" is superficial, and he and his legislative minions are working on rolling out still more wildly unpopular initiatives ranging from the Heartbeat Bill and defunding Planned Parenthood to selling off the turnpike to Right to Work for Less to this cockamamie idea of Husted's about allocating electoral votes by congressional districts, even though Ohio's are so obscenely gerrymandered they don't remotely represent the state. If any of this becomes reality or even close, look for more repeal referendums on the ballot, which would kill Kasich. Plus don't think union-busting SB 5 is forgotten.

    In addition, we have a deep bench here with a lot of attractive candidates for up and down the statewide ticket. Plus the Ohio Republican Party is at civil war with itself. Kasich and Husted hate each other, and will have a hard time working together. I'm still not entirely convinced Kasich will run again — unless it's to spite Husted, who everyone knows desperately wants to be governor.

    2014 could be very fertile for Ohio Democrats. The Ohio GOP will have some rough sledding. Lean Dem, for sure.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
