Now that Ted Strickland is the Democratic Nominee, it is time for Ohio Democrats and pundits to get excited and join the team…

 

“Ohio Democrats are worried about Ted Strickland … He’s been described as tired and unsteady on the stump, forgetting his opponent’s name and the office he’s running for.”
- PG Sittenfeld’s SuperPAC

“This is one of the urgent moral issues of our day. Ted Strickland has been wrong at every step of his career. We need senators that are going to have some courage.”
- PG Sittenfeld
City Club Debate

"If it’s with Ted, the race is about the past. We had that election and we lost it.”

"He's going to be 75. Everybody thinks he's the strongest candidate because the Democrats have such a weak bench."
