Since the GOP can’t seem to find any other candidate, why not run one who has actually done the job before? It got me wondering, so I checked his URL jimpetro.com. There’s no site there, but the whois information seems to have been updated today and lists New Media Communications as the Administrative and Technical contacts. New Media is a well known GOPer web shop.
If the domain were dormant and just sitting there, why would information be updated as of today? I’m not sure if New Media had worked with Jim in the past, but he’s not listed on their very thorough list of clients.
So is Jim Petro gonna give it another go? This half makes sense since he could run as a pseudo-incumbent and he’s not seen as a rabid right winger, which has shown to be a loser for the ORP up to this point. Ken Blackwell anyone?
I’m sure someone can dig into this further. I’ve no time. Could be fun though, no?
