Steve Stivers was at the Dublin St. Pat’s Day parade with his supporters today. Here’s their group photo…
Notice anything interesting?
Ok- sure. they are all wearing blue t-shirts. Anything else?
Ding! you are right- they are all white. And mostly men. Also in attendance: 4 kids, 5 babies and 1 dog.
And, if I was a betting man, I’d wager that around 10% of these people are relatives of Mr. Stivers.
The rest, of course, are still a bunch of white people- about 40 of them actually. Not really a big turnout given there are about a million people in Franklin county.
And of that million people, 20% are black and 51% are women.
It looks like Mr. Stivers has a long way to go if he wants to start getting support from the majority of his district’s voters.
