Well, this is a second option for Ohio. We are finding best options for democrats in all states against the bests republicans and i dont can forget this option. Ohio will be very important state in 2010 elections.

Lasts days we see here three options for Ohio. T Strickland for governor and generic candidates for governor and for senate. These are the results:

OH-Gov: M DeWine (R-1947) vs T Strickland (D-1941) ? af 16 votes = 07,813 => Likely Democr
2 OH-Gov: M DeWine (R-1947) vs ? after 13 votes = 06,923 => Leans Democratic
OH-Sen: R Portman (R-1955) vs ? after 21 votes = 06,349 => Leans Democratic

These little polls seems tell R Portman is viewed here like more strong candidate than M DeWine, because the rate for a generic candidate is more high in the poll for governor (06,923 in the race against DeWine for a generic candidate, and 06,349 in the race against Portman in the race for senate).

Seems the people feel or think what a generic candidate can win few more easily the race for governor against M DeWine.

For that, i think today we must try see the fourth option. T Strickland running for senate against R Portman. I know some people like more T Strickland continue for governor. I think can be good try see. All polls are open for new votes.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Personally, I hope Strickland stays in the Governor's mansion. We are going to have a lot of very difficult work ahead in this state.

    I think Brunner has done an outstanding job as SoS and would love to see her run. Tim Ryan is another up and coming star, IMHO.

    Inconceivable! You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

    Lt. Gov Lee Fisher vs SoS Jennifer Brunner in the primary.  Fisher is probably going to get the majority of the state's Democratic party officials behind him and Brunner has Emily's List in state already.

    Ryan is out, he's endorsing Fisher.  Lee wouldn't run if Ted was so he's out.

    Hey you, dont tell me theres no hope at all Together we stand, divided we fall.

    behind him, but expect Brunner to get big props from Ohio Dem voters for cleaning up the SOS mess left by Ken Blackwell. Fisher is a good man, but a horrible campaigner. He doesn't tend to do well in general elections.

    The big question is, how many counties in Ohio will either Brunner or Fisher win in the November 2010 election? It will be a serious test of President Obama's and Governor Strickland's coattails.

    Let's hope that Ohio voters are smart enough to understand what still has to be done. Even in such a horrible economy, Obama won Ohio by only 4 1/2%. Even during the great depression, FDR won Ohio in 1932 by only one and a half percentage points.

    Unofrtunately, Ohio voters have short memories.
