Politics in Sunday paper

The pancake breakfast/straw poll essentially echoed the national results from Nevada and South Carolina, with John McCain and Mitt Romney at the top.

Howard Wilkinson has the story here

Howard also notes the Hamilton County GOP endorsed Schmidt Friday night. Here's the story.

If the GOP expects to hold the 2nd district, it sure would make sense for Brinkman & Dewine to drop out now since they do not even have the support of their own in Hamilton County!! Pleae save your money and get behind our conservative representative JEAN SCHMIDT and keep working for the conservative cause instead of fighting each other and encouraging GOP voters to stay home in November and put Wulsin or whoever in office!!!!

Not surprising that Schmidt won endorsement. Incumbents only get stronger the longer they are in office. Though a little ironic because Jean Schmidt has only represented Hamilton County for 2 and half years compared to over a decade for Heimlich. Though how embarrassing for Tom Brinkman. Can only muster six votes out of a county he has represented for nearly 8 years. That is sad.

I mean Brinkman & Heimlich. They should not waste their money. We do not need to further divide our efforts. The national democrats will be throwing a lot of money into this race to try to topple JEAN SCHMIDT and we must stick together and defeat those liberals that will take away our freedoms by taxing us & forcing healthcare and other programs on us that will not work !!!!

You're right, the best way to win is to stick with Jean Schmidt. She has, after all, nearly lost a district that is heavily, heavily Republican. Continuing to stick with a severe underperformer is the best way to go. Schmidt is the Democrats best hope to take this district.
