I posted earlier about the abrupt silence after the Kasich-Daniels event in Cleveland. I guess the hits just keep on coming as it relates to Kasich’s latest #failweek:
Republican gubernatorial candidate John Kasich drew a crowd of about 150 people to his afternoon campaign event Thursday at Zinc Restaurant’s outside patio on Euclid Avenue downtown.
Flanked by his running mate, State Auditor Mary Taylor, Northeast Ohio businessman Ed Crawford, Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels and others, Kasich complained that Ohio’s business climate is driving people out of Cleveland and out of the Buckeye State.
But it was the blazing sun, not the business climate, that was driving people from the event. The patio’s concrete reflected the heat and a slow stream of supporters snuck out of their seats, wiping sweat from their brows as they headed for the air conditioned indoors.
Several rows had been vacated before the event ended, prompting one Republican wag to comment: “This is our way of determining the true Kasich supporter. Anybody left outside will get a cabinet position.”
Hot in Cleveland in late July? Who knew? Maybe their event planner and carpetblogger are both doing their campaign jobs remotely from Virginia. Then again it’s no less hot in suburban DC either. It is July after all.
OK. I guess it’s officially a new week. Will the Kasich Kamp go for 3 in a row? One can only wait with great anticipation that the Schadenfreude will return.
