Suffolk University out of Boston polled the Ohio Statewide races as well as some other issues.  I guess it’s a testament to the important of Ohio to the national political scene that we have so many out-of-state, East Coast universities who poll Ohio fairly regularly like Quinnipiac.

Anyway, the poll of 500 likely voters had some expected, and unexpected results.

The Expected

Guess which polling outfit has shown the closest margin in the Senate race?  Well, this poll comes close but it’s still shows a double-digit lead as opposed to the last Rasmussen poll which is the only […]

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Jon Husted has decided to drop out of the Cleveland City Club debate with his Democratic opponent Maryellen O’Shaughnessy.

The debate was scheduled for September 29th.  Both campaigns had confirmed their attendance.

Husted’s reason?  He’s scheduled to do nine joint appearances with O’Shaughnessy.  Not sure how many of those are nothing more than editorial board meetings with Ohio’s newspapers. [UPDATE:] Yep.  We’ve confirmed with the O’Shaugnessy campaign that Husted’s “nine joint appearances” consists of two planned debates, and the rest were joint appearances in front of Ohio newspaper’s editorial boards seeking […]

Maryellen O’Shaughnessy takes the Democracy for America Grassroots All Star voting for Ohio. Support from the DFA Chair and email list use will go a long way toward helping Maryellen become the next Secretary of State. There are other perks as well. This is a good get for O’Shaughnessy. Good stuff.

Congrats to the campaign and to Maryellen!

Modern already posted about several FOP endorsements today. Included in that is a nod to Secretary of State candidate Maryellen O’Shaughnessy. While Modern rightly points out that these endorsements are in all likelihood who the FOP think will win in November (Fisher the notable exception), I do find it odd that a former speaker of the Ohio House cannot wrap up their endorsement.

But hey, there’s always the German-American Civic Forum.

(Full disclosure: I’m part “German American” so no offense there)

As my co-bloggers have been reminding me lately, I’ve not been blogging much here at the ol’ PB, lately.  Sorry!  Being Candidate Man is beginning to take over my life almost entirely.  Most of my blogging is now at the campaign site (thoughts on sharing a last name with Frank Russo here, on Harvey Pekar’s death here, and Plain Dealer stupidity here).  We’ve got about a month and a half to go before the primary, I feel pretty confident, so the blogging will be even lighter.  People have been asking me my thoughts on stuff, though, so […]

I am preparing to write the glowingest post about Chris Redfern I’ve ever written, or probably ever will write. ?Mr. Chairman, feel free to start shopping for frames that match Plunderbund’s color scheme. ?Before I do that, I need to touch on the potential for an ODP endorsement in the post-Garrison SOS primary in favor of Maryellen O’Shaughnessy over Sharen Neuhardt.

To be clear – I do not support ODP endorsements in primaries, ever. ?However, in this instance, an ODP endorsement was a last bullet, albeit high caliber, in the chamber aimed at getting out Jennifer Garrison. ?Whether that potential […]

That’s what this story and this quote means.

Speaking at an Associated Press-sponsored conference for reporters, Redfern did not throw his support behind Garrison, who represents a competitive state House district that Democrats could struggle to keep if she runs for secretary of state.

“I feel confident she’ll hold that seat, if that’s her choice,” Redfern said.

Fernsy is very publicly letting it be known that it is ODP that is pushing out Garrison, and about to potentially endorse O’Shaughnessy. ?He wants the credit. ?If he pulls it off, he’ll deserve it.

Not quite time for a blog victory […]
