Dear Friend,Today is Monday, the 30th of October. There are only eight days left until election day!

I am locked in a heated battle with my opponent Ted Strickland. We differ on many issues, but only I have the prescription that will lead Ohio to a brighter future.

A new, nonpartisan report finds that Ohio has the 2nd largest local and state tax burden in the nation. And while in Congress, Ted Strickland voted for tax increases and against tax cuts 83 times! Ohio cannot afford another Taft-like tax-raising politician such as Ted Strickland.

Today, my campaign began running an ad featuring former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani . Please take a moment to view the spot at .

Rudy Giuliani knows that I am the only candidate who has the leadership ability and the qualifications to be Ohio’s next governor. I am spreading this message as I travel throughout Ohio’s 88 counties, I need your financial support to broadcast my positive, tax-cutting job-creating agenda to undecided voters.

Ohio’s future is at stake, so please stand with me one last time . With your help, we will win on November 7th and put Ohio back on a path to job creation and economic prosperity. (Please click here to contribute! )

God Bless,

Ken Blackwell
