Former Governor Ted Strickland (D. OH) is back to help Ed FitzGerlad (D. OH) takedown his former rival, Governor John Kasich (R. OH):
In 2010, John Kasich, his former Wall Street colleagues, and his wealthy friends spent more than $30 million on the governor’s race. They drowned the airwaves with negative attacks that wrongly linked me to the Great Recession.

Looking back, everyone knows that Wall Street caused that economic catastrophe – and the millions of jobs that were lost because of it. But Kasich had so much money he could afford to tell a different story.

We can’t let that happen again.

If each of us contributes a few dollars right now, my friend Ed will have the resources to fight back against the Kasich smear machine. I’m asking you to contribute to help Ed win in November. If it's $5, $15 or $20, every dollar goes a long way.

For those of us affected by John Kasich’s reckless agenda, we know that the November election itself isn’t our endgame.

Since 2011, Kasich has attacked firefighters and police officers, nurses and teachers, women and families. He’s cut taxes for the rich and gutted public services for the rest of us. He’s slashed food stamps for the hungry and stood quiet while long-term unemployment benefits expired.

As Kasich’s former opponent, I know first-hand that elections matter. As Ohioans enduring Governor Kasich’s harmful agenda, all of us know how much elections matter – and what consequences they bring.

Join me and make sure that this time, we get it right. Together, we need to elect Ed:

Thank you,

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.

      the next time I see Ed or anyone from his campaign.

      I've been dismantling Kasich on my blog for four years. I've been dismantling the other statewide GOP officeholders too, especially the odious Josh "The Empty Suit" Mandel, whose ass will hopefully be kicked in November by Connie Pillich, and Jon "Keep Those Democrats From Voting!" Husted, who I hope will be crushed by Nina Turner.

      Ed FitzGerald for governor Of Ohio. Women's lives depend on it.
