Congratulations, Jennifer Brunner, you’ve now become part of Governor Kasich’s talking points in support of Issue 2:
At the Roundtable [discussing Issue 2], the governor championed the “need to work together to fix the problems in this state,” adding: “No more politics. I don’t care if you’re Republican or Democrat. … I don’t care because Ohio is dying and we need to get it healed.” He cited his appointment of Jennifer Brunner, a Democrat and former secretary of state, to the Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission.

Jennifer Brunner got played by Kasich, just as we predicted. Now, she’s become the star token Democrat Kasich uses to try to convince Ohioans he’s policies really aren’t radical or partisan. He talks about Brunner so much, you’d think Mary Taylor would start to get jealous of being shoved out of the limelight.
I hope Jennifer Brunner enjoys her appointment at the Ohio Cultural Facilities Commission because it just cost her any chance of getting any meaningful support in Ohio Democratic politics again.
