The Northeast Ohio Media Group and the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland put together a voter survey this year, sending questionnaires to each campaign and posting the responses for each race on their website. The candidate questionnaires for Ohio Governor covered topics including taxes, same-sex marriage, gun laws, right-to-work and job growth.

Republican strategists reportedly are ecstatic over their new fail-safe response to critics of the party’s climate-change deniers. Their candidates have now resorted to “I’m not a scientist” to shrug off questions about their dismissal of environmental issues.
We can now look for the same pattern of self-denials on other issues as their gang backs away from such delicate matters as ebola. Chris Christie, who is coming to Ohio to campaign for his buddy John Kasich as the comic relief, is already dodging a flap over quarantining ebola victims. “I’m not a doctor,” he booms. Atty Gen Mike DeWine might choose […]Full Story... →
