The Associated Press reports that yesterday’s campaign finance reporting indicates that Hamilton County David Pepper’s healthy fundraising indicates that his race is appears to be headed towards victory:

Auditor candidate David Pepper, a Cincinnati Democrat, is muscling out his opponents in the money race as well. The son of a former Procter & Gamble chief executive has $605,000 in the bank, 20 times that of either of his Republican opponents: former county prosecutor David Yost and state Rep. Seth Morgan.

Yost only last week moved into the auditor’s race from the attorney general’s race, leaving former U.S. Sen. Mike DeWine unopposed against Cordray.

Had Taylor stayed in the race, Pepper would only have a 2:1 cash-on-hand advantage, instead of the 20:1 he has.

Thanks, Kasich!

    i know. i know. here i go again. i'm just tired of hearing about wealthy people, like the sons and daughters of CEOs, running for office in the party that sits on the left side of the aisle. to me this just shows that america doesn't have, and desperately needs, a true party of the Left.

    well, che guevara came from relative wealth, so i guess there's the bone i'm willing to throw. hehe

  • Downside to America politics ain't it. Need money or need to do favors to get votes.

    British politics works on who you know inside.
