Ohio House 16th: Supreme Court Rules Brady (D) to Stay on Ballot

A unanimous Ohio Supreme Court has affirmed an appellate court's ruling that Jennifer Brady (D-Westlake) is to remain a candidate in the 16th Ohio House District because Secretary of State Ken Blackwell's deputy Monty Lobb did not have legal authority to remove her.

With 99.30% of the precincts reporting, Brady leads Ed Herman (R-Rocky River) by 22,763 to 21,733 votes, or 51.16% to 48.84%.

How did the Meettheblogger candidates do? Suzanne Blum didn't even get 40%. Goudy was trounced more than 2 to 1. Hanna, lost. Katz got 39% in a year where every credible Dem should've been able, bare minimum, to get mid-high 40s

Yeah, I guess you can count Stephanie Tubbs Jones, if you want, but she was basically running unopposed.

In short, looks like the crew has a long way to go in making any difference whatsoever among the electorate.

The above is a laughably pathetic comment. Meet the Bloggers is not about picking out sure-fire winners for interviews, or about helping candidates win. It's about getting to know and learning from experts, public officials, candidates, and other interesting people. In any event, Meet the Bloggers's record on winning candidates isn't much different from, say, newspaper endorsements (the ABJ endorsed Hanna, the PD and ABJ endorsed Foltin, lots of papers endorsed DeWine, etc.), and they ARE trying to influence elections.

The candidates you mention, by the way, are all outstanding people with much to offer, whether they prevailed in this election or not.

Hey Anon - why don't you name yourself the way you named candidates in your comment?

Blum: pulled in that number against an incumbent

Katz: pulled in more than Cafaro in an almost always GOP district, against an entrenched incumbent

Hanna: also against a well-known incumbent

Goudy: in a district that has gone with the GOP candidate for the last few election cycles

Sorry - but your point has zero backing. What you point does support, however, is keeping the voters at a distance and refusing to de-mystify the very people who say they represent us.

That's what MTB works to accomplish. Sorry you don't seem to share that value.
