Why John Kasich will be the next governor of Ohio
Yes, I just claimed that John Kasich is going to be Ohio’s next governor. This is not meant as hyperbole. I really believe Kasich is going to beat Governor Strickland in November. This is not based on deep study of the polls or a county-by-county analysis or anything of that sort. It is more of a gut feeling based on how I see the campaign | Read More »
John Kasich: Devoted to a New Day for Ohio.
I have a longer post brewing on the Ohio governor’s race jumping off the latest polls, etc. but until that is done check out this nice candidate introduction video from team Kasisch:
Painting the Midwest Red: A Sea Change is Coming in this Year’s Governors’ Races
The big news and focus in right-of-center and Republican circles this time of year is always CPAC. For many students and young people, it is their first exposure to the wide-ranging and yes, diverse people and organizations that make up the conservative movement, and it is very important. But it’s also not the only important event that happens this time. As it happens, I spent | Read More »

John Kasich: Thanks Redstate for what you do
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 | Read More »

John Kasich and Mary Taylor – Strong Ohio Ticket in 2010
As I noted earlier, I was able to attend the press conference yesterday after the announcement – via Twitter – that Ohio gubernatorial candidate John Kasich had selected State Auditor Mary Taylor to be his running mate. Do some technical difficulties with YouTube this post was delayed until this morning (and let me apologize for the video quality in advance – I need a tripod). | Read More »
ORP Chair DeWine and Rep. Tiberi on Kasich-Taylor
I was at the press conference today where Ohio gubernatorial candidate John Kasich announced his choice of State Auditor Mary Taylor for Lieutenant Governor. I have a longer video and post coming but wanted to post this quick take from two people I spoke with today: Ohio Republican Party Chairman Kevin DeWine and Congressman Pat Tiberi. Perhaps not surprisingly, they both think it means good | Read More »
John Kasich: Tea Parties Are About Genuine Concerns, Not Anger
From the diaries by Erick. Ohio’s John Kasich appears to present a pretty accurate view of what the Tea Parties are actually all about in my opinion. Clue: It ain’t about anger folks. It’s about genuine concerns over the direction the country seems to be headed right now. In this state, our fellow Ohioans have shown up at these events not because they’re angry, but because they care about | Read More »
You trust government to do what?
Update: Added YouTube instead. Funny and frightening Hannity clip about how President Obama plans to cut a tiny sliver of government spending. Bonus John Kasich appearance. I think the quip about the government some people want to run health care just discovered paper has two sides should make you laugh and then cry.
PPP: Strickland/Kasich within margin of error.
Not that they noted that, really. But there’s still been some erosion of Strickland’s support in the last several months, whether PPP’s explicit about it or not: 43% of Ohio voters approve of how Strickland is doing his job as Governor, while 42% disapprove. A January PPP survey found the numbers at 48/35. Strickland’s approval among Democrats has dropped from 70% to 62%, an unusually | Read More »
A Gov. Ted Strickland (D, OH) timeline on gambling.
2006: Senator Bi-Partisan in Gambling Debate Republican Sen. George Voinovich helped persuade Ted Strickland, the Democratic nominee for governor, to oppose any proposal to introduce slot machines that are similiar to casino gambling in Ohio through an issue on the November ballot. Voinovich, who thinks gambling is a powerful addiction and can be destructive to families, has opposed any expansion beyond current law since a | Read More »
Ohio Democrats must be worried
Because they are really ratcheting up the lame attacks on John Kasich. First, they offered this lame website making the accusation that Kasich’s job at Lehman Brothers somehow makes him responsible for the firms collapse, the housing bubble, and the general economic crisis. I thought Kasich handled that one best: “Blaming me for Lehman Brothers is like blaming a car dealer in Zanesville for the | Read More »
Chuck Norris endorses John Kasich
Cross Posted to Ohio Politics Online Ohio Governor Ted Strickland must have had an odd tingly sensation run up his spine on Monday. Why the sudden sense of fear? Chuck Norris endorsed John Kasich’s bid for governor of Ohio: John Kasich is running for governor of Ohio. As his website conveys, Kasich is the son of a mailman, who grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood | Read More »
Great moments in Democratic responsibility.

John Kasich: Righting The Ship
Fox reports that John Kasich aims to “right the ship” as the next Ohio Governor. That item here – with a video of a recent TV interview below. I like Kasich for several reasons. He was a genuine foot soldier in the Reagan Revolution, unlike some who claim the mantle without the resume to back it up. Riding Reagan’s coat-tails was one thing. Understanding the Reagan | Read More »
