This is Kevin DeWine’s kind of Republican. Kick both of them out of the Ohio Republican Party.
How would you describe someone who chose to stand with Ted Strickland over Ken Blackwell in 2006, and proudly displayed Strickland bumper stickers and signs on their vehicles and property? Would you call them a Republican? Hardly, right? Well, guess what? Such a person sits on the Ohio Republican Party State Committee. The person in question is Nancy Suhadolnik, wife of Gary Suhadolnik. Not only | Read More »
Ohio GOP Chairman DeWine’s media advisor helped kill Ohio public union reform
Meet Mark Weaver. Weaver is an Ohio political consultant who has been around the state for a long time, and had a pretty great track record before 2011. He was the campaign media consultant to Rob Portman’s successful Senate campaign in 2010, and even was an adviser to Ronald Reagan.

Mitt Romney’s Ohio Problem
We’ve all heard the axiom, “as goes Ohio, so goes the nation”. In fact, no Republican has ever won the Presidency without winning Ohio.

Kevin DeWine and his Ohio Republican Party cowards hide behind secret ballot
Kevin DeWine is going to go down in history as the most corrupt chairman of the Ohio Republican Party ever. And he doesn’t seem to care.

Did the Ohio Democratic Chairman engineer Dennis Kucinich’s exit from Congress?
The Dennis and Marcy primary saga continues. First, a look at Kucinich’s and Kaptur’s districts as they stand today, before redistricting. Dennis’s 10th comprises most of western Cuyahoga county. Marcy, in the 9th, represents most of Lucas County (including Toledo), all of Ottawa and Erie Counties, and western and southern Lorain County. In Ohio, we knew that we were going to lose 2 seats in | Read More »

Ohio Right to Work Amendment: Right policy, wrong time.
It’s been over two weeks since Ohioans rejected the reasonable government union reforms in Issue 2. Big Labor poured over $30 million into a campaign to persuade voters to stay with the status quo. But they also rejected a whopping 78% of school levies that requested additional funds to pay for the ever increasing costs of public union benefits. So in the end, the unions | Read More »
