27. It could be, but probably not.
The issues were too long and people didn't understand them.

There was NO good print information distributed in the Dayton area.

The negative ads suggested taxes would increase if the issues passed.

We've got to stop crying in our beer, sober up, and make this state BLUE again. If we can go around the local Democratic party, let's do it.

Now, HOW do we do it?
