Ohio 2010 House Election Map

The only blue areas left are those surrounding Toledo, Cleveland, Akron and the area east of Akron around Youngstown.

The striped areas are districts that were in Democrat hands, but switched to Republican hands in the election.

Now that "Our Future Ohio" PAC has flushed over $3M down the drain it is time to find out who funded their last minute effort to alter our elections here in Ohio.

If they are to be believed, OFO PAC raised the money, obtained staff, offices, researched the issues, wrote scripts, filmed, did the voice overs, bought ad time (in the last two weeks of the campaign???) AND went through the same process for very expensive print material in just 14 days. I do not believe that they did all this in just two weeks. I believe it was a planned sneak attack at the last minute. I also don't believe the money they were given came from Ohio unless some local PO Box or address was used as a pass through to make the money appear to be local. I think Ohio deserves some answers from Ted and Lee's good friend Alan Melamed.

Of course the people who gave him the money want some answers too. Maybe he is explaining how he lost the entire thing and hasn't had time to answer questions from the voters of Ohio.

Election Wrap Up

It is very interesting to look at the congressional and state and local election results maps. It appears that those that are the bluest this morning all huddle around cities pleading for the most in government handouts.

This video is pretty telling.

I'd love to go back to bed and catch up on some sleep, but too much to do.

Ohio is once again a red state and once again our state legislature is Republican. We will have the finest Speaker of the House, Bill Batchelder, in the nation.

Below is a photograph of Gov. elect John Kasich and soon to be Speaker of the House Bill Batchelder. The photographer is Jack Kustron who very graciously posted it on my Facebook page. The photo says it all.
