1. Very cool
Perhaps he could be your governor someday in the not-too-distant future.

2. this link is from a paper in his potential district
Here's what the Marietta Times has to say about it

(snip)

During the hour-long event Monday, Anderson and other Democrats criticized what they called neglect of southeastern Ohio by the Republican-dominated state government.

"It's got to be obvious to anyone who pays attention that we're not getting our fair share here," Anderson said. "We're paying taxes, more and more taxes, and they're not going into our schools or our infrastructure."

That theme, that SE Ohio needs better representation and more in return for its tax dollar, will play well.

4. I have a good deal of respect for Terry Anderson.
He's a good writer and a thoughtful, nuanced one. I hope he succeeds in his race, should that be where he can serve this country best.

And I'm not surprised to learn he's a Democrat, but ...
