You know why Strickland is doing so much better than Fisher right now (even though I think both are underdogs), because Strickland knows how to campaign and Lee Fisher doesn't. It still annoys me that Lee Fisher was the candidate the DSCC pushed so heavily over Brunner. Epic Fail on their part. I hope the DSCC doesn't spend another dime in Ohio.

Don't worry, the DSCC will support Lee Fisher no matter what. They'll bring over their entire Wisconsin operation and throw Russ Feingold under the bus if they have to!

Field Marshal:

While the senate seat is much more important, the governors race is still valuable since Ohio will most likely lose 2 seats. With 10 of 18 seats held by Dems (which will probably drop to 7 after Nov) the governor has a chance to drop them down to 5.

Good article in CQ about it.

Stickland's only at 45...it seems that the libs have forgotten who the incumbent is in this race.
