Schmidt on Brinkman
From Malia Rulon in Washington:
Not long after she called supporters at Clermont County GOP headquarters in Batavia to thank them for her solid primary win, Rep. Jean Schmidt shrugged off the challenge she faced from Tom Brinkman. Brinkman, who entered the primary only in December, is a strict conservative. For instance, he sponsored a bill in the Ohio legislature to make all abortions felonies.
"It's a free country," Schmidt said. "He's a fringe candidate."
