It looks like BSB is still breaking stories. David reported two days ago that Jennifer Brunner would be supporting Franklin County Commissioner Marilyn Brown as her replacement for Secretary of State.
I found it a little hard to believe. Thought maybe David was full of crap.
Paula Brooks, maybe. But Marilyn Brown?
But it turns out it’s true. I just got Marilyn’s press release.
And I’m kind of amazed, actually.
It’s really in Jennifer Brunner’s best interest that the Dems have the strongest possible candidate for SOS in 2010.
Jennifer needs to win the support of Ohio’s Democrats for her primary run against Lee Fisher and a lot of those Democrats think Jennifer should stay were she is.
To win over these Dems Jennifer really needs to show she has a solid candidate to run as her replacement for Secretary of State.
I guess I’m left wondering: is Marilyn Brown that candidate?
It really could screw Brunner’s chances in the primary if the rest of the party thinks Brown isn’t up for the challenge.
