Ohio Daily Blogger/political consultant Anthony Fossaceca apparently isn’t wasting any time.  Today, he declared that he’s planning to run for the Ohio House of Representatives in a district that has yet to be drawn and a year before the primary.

Anthony’s already created his campaign website, too!  No word yet on when the yard signs will be available. 🙂

I haven’t checked with the Secretary of State’s office, but that makes Anthony the first announced candidate for any office in the 2012 election cycle in Ohio, I’m sure.  Which is pretty remarkable when you consider that there’s not an officially declared candidate for the Republican nomination for President even though a bunch of prospective candidates are licking conservative boots at CPAC right now.

Anthony suggests he has his sights on the current 17th District which is held by freshman Republican State Rep.  Marlene Anielski who took nearly 55% of the vote to ‘10 Democratic nominee Kellie Perk’s 40% in what had been State Treasurer Josh Mandel’s seat.

We’d like to think that Anthony is doing his part to fill up Ohio Daily’s masthead graphic after the 2010 election.  So in that spirit, might we proposed they put up this updated graphic:


Good luck, Anthony!  Let us know how it’s going!  (But you can wait until we’re a tad closer to the primary to start feeding us the campaign updates.)

    You guys have WAY, WAY, WAY too much time on your hands. 🙂 Thanks for the love, but we won’t be updating the header anytime soon. Very funny though.

    Well, off to CPAC!

    LOL…. If you’re speaking at CPAC, then you’re becoming Josh Mandel.

    C’mon on. You can do like Naugle did in 2006… put up every candidate and then after the primaries cross out the ones who didn’t get the nomination. I thought that was great.

    To be clear, we just did a photoshop graphic… no actual hacking occurred. Thanks for understanding to any relevant law enforcement authorities out there….
