    IN the past Strickland has got money from AEP (AEP of biggest EPA fine infamy, the largest Utility in the country).  AEP (surprisingly enough) wants to move to wind, new technologies in a big way (utility companies don't favor Nuclear bc of the up keep cost, the less up keep the better).  Besides the big future is in transmission not just generation.  AEP HQ is in Columbus, and they are trying to expand even more there. (as opposed to TX) those are just some of the forces, that are hurt by Ohio appearing as somehow more "racist" then other states.
