In  the brief  pause after the first debate,  I want to  recognize a special group of Republican Ohio politicians that I will continue to do  up to election day.

It’s  the shadowy group that endorsed Donald Trump and then took the first covered wagon out of town.  Now you see ‘em and now you don’t.   Profiles in courage they aren’t. That’s an attribute that only shows up in their yard signs.

Allow me  to share the list with you:   Sen. Rob  Portman,  U.S. Rep. Renacci,  Atty. Gen. Mike DeWine, Secretary of State Jon Husted, Treasurer Josh  Mandel, Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger and Ohio Senate President Keith  Faber.  There  are unconfirmed reports that they were  last seen near the Ohio  River planning  their next campaigns.

Some of them have chosen to disguise their endorsements by faithfully  serving party loyalty .  Without naming Trump, they tell us they are supporting their party’s nominee. Good grief, gentlemen. We all know who that monstrous nominee is, a deranged guy  whose name will shame you in the history books long after you’ve left office once and for all.

It’s DONALD TRUMP… Got it?  If he wins, there’s no way you can deny that you helped deliver him to the Oval Office.  We’ve  never seen alleged public servants shamelessly stoop so low.
