    She's saying she's not going to support Fisher if he wins.

      She's Secretary of State, it would be INCREDIBLY inappropriate for her to campaign on behalf of a candidate.  She didn't even campaign for Obama!

        Asked by a Dayton Daily News reporter last week how much she would work for Lt. Gov. Lee Fisher if he wins and she loses, Brunner held up her hand and formed a zero.

        Assuming your explanation to be true, there's a classy way to express this. She could have said soemthing along the lines of "It would be inappropriate for me, acting  in my position as the state's chief electiosn officail to become involved.." and what she is being reported and which, neither she nor her supporters have denied. Making a zero with your fingers tends to be a pretty dramatic statement, people do it for effect, not to make a bland statement about neutrality.

        •  She said exactly that in the Cleveland Debate (1+ / 0-)

          when asked the same question.  And I'm sure she justified her response to the Dayton Daily News, but they just didn't include the justification.  For two reasons: including all of the facts wouldn't be sensationalist enough, and because the Dayton Daily News endorsed Fisher.
