  •  Something that gives me a little hope for Ohio: (2+ / 0-)

    NM Ward Chair, 2014

    I live in OH-2, which got some attention when William R. Smith, a total unknown, won the D primary despite a complete lack of campaigning and advertising. Even in the general, he did not campaign, advertise, raise funds, or even provide a response to the League of Women Voters' election guide, and the state and county Dems figured the district was a lost cause anyway, so they didn't offer much support either. In the end, he of course lost, but he did muster up 41% of the vote, which seems rather high, considering. I think if we can get a well-known candidate on the ballot in 2014 and actually put some effort into the race, mmmaaybe OH-2 won't turn out to be such a lost cause after all.

      •  She's our lame duck (0+ / 0-)

        She got primaried by Brad Wenstrup, so he's going to be our rep in the incoming Congress.

        A fact is more than just the average of two opinions.
