2nd District straw poll coming up
There's an event coming up on Saturday, Feb. 9 that might give a good indication of where things stand in the 2nd Congressional District contest on the Democratic side - at least where things stand in Clermont County.
The Clermont County Democratic Party is holding a forum for 2nd District candidates at 10 a.m. that day at the Union Township Civic Center. Victoria Wulsin and Steve Black, the principal candidates, have agreed to attend; an invitation was also extended to William R. Smith, a Pike County Democrat whose name will be on the ballot, but the party hasn't heard a peep out of him yet.
There will be plenty of coffee, juice and yummy pastries and a chance to hear Black and Wulsin go at it.
Then, for $2 (proceeds going to the Clermont County Democratic Party), those in attendence can buy ballots to cast in a 2nd District straw poll.
Now, don't show up with a $20 bill and expect to buy 10 ballots you can cast for your favorite candidate. One ballot per customer.
