It’s all here. ?The first thing I noticed – in an era when it was assumed you needed at least a 100,000 vote margin in Cuyahoga County to win statewide, Lee only won Cuyahoga by 83,000 votes. ?That required margin has grown larger since.
Lost Franklin County by 12,000 votes. ?Lost Hamilton County by 62,000 votes. ?The big swing county, Stark? ?Lost that by almost 8,000 votes. ?Outraised Bob Taft. ?In an economy humming along at Clinton-era, dot-com era bubble levels. ?Still lost the state by 220,000 votes.
