Wulsin gets endorsements

Victoria Wulsin picked up the endorsements of some influential elected officials in Hamilton County Wednesday. She is running against Indian Hill lawyer Steve Black in a Democratic primary for the second congressional district. Hamilton County Commission President Todd Portune, former Ohio Governor Jack Gilligan, Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Crowley, councilman John Cranley, and councilwoman Laketa Cole endorsed Wulsin at press event Wednesday at Portune’s law office. They said she brings experience to the job and espouses issues that are important to the county.

And, added Gilligan, "she's intelligent. That would be a change!" Wulsin's staffers chuckled, then made sure the comment would be attributed to Gilligan, rather than the campaign.
Portune said Wulsin, is "a true Democrat," and, as a doctor, makes public healthcare a priority. That's important to Hamilton County, which has stepped in to try to fill that gap for its citizens.
Cole said health care coverage issue touches home for her because her aunt recently died of an anuerism. Cole thinks she was misdiagnosed months ago. The aunt had poor health care insurance so her doctors didn't do the appropriate tests, Cole said.
"We don't just want her, we need her, Cole said.

Former Cincinnati mayor Dwight Tillery, former State Rep. Catherine Barrett, Silverton Mayor John Smith and Cincinnati council members Jeff Berding and Cecil Thomas also endorsed Wulsin, but were not at the event, according to her campaign.

Wulsin said she is grateful for the support and hopes, when people see how many local public servants support her, it will translate into voter support at the polls.

Yet another Wulsin puff piece? It's starting to look like the rumors that there's a "Black out" going on at the Enquirer are true.

Hey Carl, Jessica, and especially Malia "Emily's List" Rulon - it's starting to smell!

It doesn't surprise us that the elected officials support Wulsin, but, it does surprise us that they came out publicly ?

We wonder how that will effect their campaign gould-chests ?

Perhaps, the money bags (i.e. stan the man, barbarossa, etc.) will realize that their behind the scenes ploy's won't work when the voters have a voice !

Lettuce (as in greenberg), send a clear message:

The days of crony, no opponent, contested seats are placed on notice !

Makes you want to lyn-grin, doesn't it ?

We wonder if anyone is interested about how the opponents finance committee member was sucking up to one of Wulsin's insiders ?

We have the picture of the 'passing of the business card'. Isn't that right, Dan ?

The Grass-roots prevail again !

If the DINO's spent as much money on Dem endorsed judges as they wasted on their wRong wingnut whacko cronies, there would be justice at the courthouse !

The weekly areial pictures have been ordered. We should have a clear view of what's growing in the county this political season !

Just wait until we send the citizen auditors to all those, so called, county 'farms' !


HAD ENOUGH, VOTE, for a real, DEMOCRAT 2008 !

I am excited to have doctor running for Congress instead of another politician.
Dr.Wulsin's experience in health care and as a mother will make her sensitive to the real issues many of us face in our daily lives.
Our country is having a health
care crisis and who better to understand it than a doctor, herself.She has my vote.

Is Jeff Berding a Democrat? Are you sure?

"Yet another Wulsin puff piece? It's starting to look like the rumors that there's a "Black out" going on at the Enquirer are true."

Maybe if Black actually got any significant endorsements--or done anything except for engage in Swift Boat politics--he would get some press too.

The Party coming behind a candidate isn't a "puff piece" anyway.

Duro Paper Bag endorsement of Wulsin will help her at any future political photo events.

With a list like that, I'm for Schmidt!

The Dems really dropped the ball on this one. They had a good thing with Jim Parker but they let him go. Schmidt is a shoe-in now.

If I was Steve Black, I would be on the phone with Jim Parker NOW. His endorsement would KILL Wulsin in the eastern counties.

Go Jean go!

Beat wacky Wulsin & send her back to Indian Hill where she belongs. Wulsin can then get back to officiating over gay marriages.
