OH - GOP voters turning out to see Dem candidates
Strickland, Brown press for change Brown Strickland
Curious GOP voters turn out to hear Democrats
Sunday, August 20, 2006

Plain Dealer Politics Writer

Clermont County- In a county that proudly paints itself political red, where about 70 percent of voters backed President Bush in 2004, Nathan Estruth showed up at a park Saturday morning to hear the blue people.

In particular, he wanted to listen to Ted Strickland, the Democratic candidate for governor who, with U.S. Senate candidate Sherrod Brown, was headlining a three-day bus tour promoting the party's statewide ticket in some of Ohio's most Republican counties.

Estruth, a father of four who typically votes Republican, milled in the back of a partisan crowd of about 100, one of just a handful of people not wearing a shirt promoting a Democratic candidate. At the urging of a friend, he came to give the Democrats, who have been out of power in Ohio for more than a decade, a chance to win his vote.

3. Yes they are
The "Turn Around Ohio" campaign has a lot of good ideas for getting the state back on track. Jobs, education, cleaning up government, energy policy reform, security at home, health care reform, balancing budgets, etc.

4. Bet the GOP "intruders" would not stick out as much as
Dem "intruders" ... you know, like Sidarth stuck out at the Repuke stronghold appearance ... the only "dark-skinned" person there (easy for Allen to pick him out of a crowd, eh?)

6. Thanks, I just saw another post on this
appears the PD reporter "apologized" for quoting a GOP plant at the rally. Seriously, how dumb do they think we are?
