If you talk to the editors about being associated with Redstate one of the first things they will tell you is how cool it is to hear how popular the site is with politicians, activists and grassroots folks all around the country. It means a lot when you meet someone and they say: "Oh, I love Redstate - read it everyday."
Well, it just so happens that one of the people who is a fan of the site is running for Governor of Ohio. I have had a number of interactions with the Kasich campaign and they have always been helpful and have frequently indicated that they are big fans of RS. And in case I doubted it, John Kasich himself took time out from his busy schedule to record a short video thanking all of you for the work you do.
I think that is pretty cool.
And I don't have to tell you that Ohio is a critical state or how big it would be to win this race. Governor Strickland and his cronies in the labor unions and other liberal interest groups is going to have a lot of money and ground troops come November. We have to match that firepower.
