Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) called for Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell (R) to step down to ensure electoral integrity in the upcoming elections.
Just as the presidential election turned on the Buckeye State, so too could the 06 Midterms. It looks like were heading for a Strickland-Blackwell Governors Race, and a Brown-DeWine Senate battle. Both are critical -- we need the Ohio Governors mansion to help catapult our Presidential nominee in 08, as well as to insure fair redistricting in 2010.There are also a number of key house races -- Wilson looks good as a write-in in Strickland's old district, and we have several other pick-up opportunities.
So Ohio could be ground zero again, and the road to the Majority may well go through Columbus.
P.S. -- not surprisingly there were numerous machine snafus in Democratic areas. We desperately need a new Secretary of State as well, if we want to count every vote
