Talking Points Memo cites Governor Strickland’s campaign as a model for incumbent Democrats.

It cites the NRA endorsement, he defining Kasich early as part of Lehman Brothers, and the aggressive campaign for rural voters in traditionally Republican leaning areas in Ohio touting the NRA endorsement.

I do think that the Strickland campaign has been running a very effective campaign in a much tougher environment than what we had in 2006.  I also agree that one of the things that is helping them is that the Kasich campaign is not running a very effective campaign at all and seems to be virtually invisible.
