John H. McConnell died today.
John’s life is really the classic American story: son of a steel worker, joined the navy, went to college on the G.I. Bill, had a good idea, started a company, got rich and turned into a Republican.
He founded Worthington Industries, help start the Columbus Clippers and the Blue Jackets and, since 1990, has contributed over half-a-million dollars to Ohio’s GOP candidates.

That’s A LOT of money!
He’s also given money to a lot of other, less-evil causes – like $7.5 million to help develop the Heart Hospital at Riverside.
He’ll certainly be missed by a lot of people – but most importantly by Ohio’s GOP fundraisers.
