OH - Cleveland PD & Columbus Dispatch Endorse Strickland for governor
Edited on Sun Oct-08-06 10:19 AM by OzarkDem
Accepting the inevitable - that Krazy Kenny Blackwell won't win, they're endorsing Ted Strickland, but keeping their powder dry to protect the GOP dominance in Congress and the Ohio General Assembly.

On edit, I hope Strickland realizes he will win this race based on his own merits, that he doesn't owe anything to any corporate clowns or other Republicans. If he wins, and its likely he will, he should govern based on what he thinks is best for Ohio, not on warmed over GOP ideas that corporate contributors will pitch to him. Ted can govern and succeed and get re-elected without their help. His donor base is truly grassroots.

1. There is no way that Voinovich's paper won't endorse Mike Dewine for Senat
I would not even take odds on that.

My prediction is that Blackwell is going to lose his election and that he is going to help the gop to steal back whatever congressional race in Ohio is close: Brown, Space, Wulsin, Kilroy, or Sutton.

2. You're so right
The Strickland endorsement is a "fig leaf" to cover the corrupt manipulations of the GOP and Ohio news media to throw Ohio races to the GOP to protect their majority in Congress and the General Assembly.

The GOP is at risk of losing not just DeWine's and Ney's seats, but also Mean Jean's, Tiberi's and also Boehner's. Though there aren't any polls available, I'd say they may also be at risk of losing a majority in the Ohio House.

They also seem very worried about Marc Dann, who has done an exemplary, heroic job of exposing GOP corruption in Ohio.

But the media is still playing all these races as "close", meaning they hope to steal wins for the GOP.
