Franklin, Cuyahoga, Montgomery, and now Mahoning County have either already outpaced or likely to outpace the 2006 Early Vote.

From WKBN 27 in Youngstown:

The Mahoning County Board of Elections said this is a busier than normal off-year election.

"It’s been very busy compared to the 2006 governor’s election," Mahoning County Board of Elections Deputy Director Joyce Kale-Pesta said. "We counted 14,000 absentees at that time and right now we’re at 17,420."

One of the cool things about living in Cleveland during an election cycle is that you get to see every ad for statewide candidates that anyone ever runs.  People poo-poo on Cuyahoga centric thinking among Ohio Dems, which is fair, but just turn on the TV in prime time and that’ll tell you how important this nook of Ohio is to candidates.  Kasich and Ted are throwing haymakers on the air.  Likely the most competitive gubernatorial ad war since 1998 (we all know who lost that one, don’t we).

Jon Keeling (R-VA) has a poll obsession.  We all know that the second a favorable poll for Kasich comes out, he’s there with a post.  And if a poll has shown Strickland close, Keeling’s there to argue why it doesn’t matter as much as an aggregate average that includes Quinnipiac which both party leaders acknowledged cannot be believed.
