Cong. OH-13th: Open Letter to Grace (D) - Please Withdraw and Endorse Sutton

Dear Mr. Grace:

You are an honorable and dedicated public servant. You have run a good campaign and have conveyed your genuine concern for working people and families in the 13th Congressional District. You've earned my respect and appreciation, and clearly many others feel the same, as the latest poll shows that you command the allegiance of 7% of likely voters.

Now, however, as I think you must know, it is clear that you will not win this race. There is a big gap between 7% support and the 24% support enjoyed by each of the three front-runners. You did not appear for the 13th District Candidates Debate at the City Club the other day, and your web site lists no public events since March 22nd. You have campaigned hard, but victory in this particular race is not a realistic goal.

However, you have the opportunity to do something important and good for the residents of the 13th District. The race appears to be deadlocked between two capable candidates, and one who has little to recommend her except a personal fortune with which to bankroll campaign commercials. You have the opportunity to make this primary election come out the right way for the people you care about, by withdrawing from the race and calling on your supporters to vote for one of the two good candidates now in the lead.

Personally, I would like to see you throw your support to Betty Sutton, who is energetic and determined to protect the interests of working people. However, if you prefer to support Tom Sawyer, who has proven himself a capable and compassionate legislator, that would be fine too. Either way, your support at this critical juncture would help boost one of these fine contenders into the lead.

Thank you for your proven leadership and dedication to the public good, and for considering this request.

Sincerely,

Jeff (blogging as Yellow Dog Sammy)

Much respect, you did that in the classiest way possible. And in truth, if he did drop out and endorse Sawyer or Sutton (my oppinions are known i think) then it would swing the balance. Why stay in when you can play king maker eh?
The worry is if he drops and supports Ms. Cafaro, who is polling well in Lorain.

A very nice letter.

If Grace did drop out my guess is he supports Sawyer. I heard both Sawyer & Grace speak independently during the campaign & both spoke very highly of one another.

I'd prefer he endorse Sutton who I think is the best candidate in the race.

Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
