    Ohio Senate candidate Ted Strickland joked about the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia on Monday, saying it came "at a good time" for union workers since he was unable to cast the deciding vote in a March case that ended up in a 4-4 deadlock. ... Strickland made the remarks in Cleveland, telling AFL-CIO members that Scalia's death "saved labor" from a terrible decision in the case, which could have dealt a blow to the ability of public-sector unions to collect fees from those who decide against joining the union and pay for collective bargaining activities. ... the...

    Country singer Craig Strickland is missing just days after a friend posted an ominous tweet that foreshadowed their disappearance. "In case we don't come back, @BackroadCRAIG and I are going right through Winter Storm Goliath to kill ducks in Oklahoma. #IntoTheStorm," Chase Morland, who was on the road with Strickland, tweeted late Saturday. SNIP On Monday, Backroad Anthem, the band that Strickland sings in, revealed that Morland had been found dead. "Everyone please say special prayers for the family of Chase Morland," they wrote on Facebook. "They were very close friends and it is such a heartbreaking loss. Randy Strickland...

    An Ohio-based solar company received millions of dollars in state and federal subsidies despite government officials’ knowledge that the company was in financial trouble, and now a local newspaper reports little activity at the manufacturer’s Perrysburg plant. According to a report last month in The Toledo Blade, Willard & Kelsey Solar Group was lent $10 million by two state agencies even though the company showed little more than a half million dollars in revenue for 2009 – that being a grant from the Buckeye State – and a loss of $4.2 million. State officials told the newspaper that loan...

    Tacoma's Mayor Marilyn Strickland recently told students at Pacific Lutheran University that the reasons Republicans were unsuccessful in recruiting minorities was because "they are racist." When her comments leaked to the media, she said she intended to say that they were "perceived as racist."I don't buy the idea that she "intended" to say something different. But I can accept that in hindsight she wishes she had. And that's a start. At least she acknowledges that Republicans are trying to include minorities, which is more than some Democrats have been willing to say of late. And it's good that she feels...

    Casey Anthony: Stan Strickland calls Belvin Perry ‘the best judge around’ Posted by halboedeker on July, 9 2011 9:53 AM Judge Stan Strickland was more than happy that he didn’t preside over the Casey Anthony murder trial and has nothing but praise for Chief Judge Belvin Perry. Strickland opened up in a revealing interview with WKMG-Channel 6’s Tony Pipitone last night. WESH-Channel 2 talked to Strickland by phone earlier Friday and he revealed his surprise at Anthony’s acquittal in the first-degree murder of her daughter, Caylee. But Pipitone sat down with Strickland, who raved over Perry. ”Judge Perry is an...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, on a fundraising trip through California this week, has rolled out endorsements from a bunch of GOP lawmakers. ... House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, said in Romney’s news release that President Obama’s policies have failed California and the nation, while Romney “has a proven record of job creation in both the private sector and as a governor.” Similarly, state Senate Republican Leader Bob Dutton, R-Rancho Cucamonga, said Romney’s record as governor “speaks for itself.” “He created jobs, balanced budgets, and cut taxes,” Dutton said. “Mitt Romney knows how the economy works...

    What was it that Democrat President Barack Obama told us about the stimulus? Oh, yeah that it would "save or create" American jobs. Seems like a good idea, right? So what happened in Ohio when Democrat Governor Ted Strickland got his mitts on some of Obama's stimulus cash? Why he gave it to a company to fund a call center that is operating out of El Salvador, Central America, of course. Jobs for Americans? Heck no, jobs for El Salvadorans! And why? Because it was a good deal, you see? Earlier this year Governor Strickland's Department of Development awarded a...

    Montgomery County Common Pleas Judge A.J. Wagner announced his retirement Tuesday in an email sent to court employees just before 10 a.m. Wagner, a Democrat, will retire at the end of the year, allowing outgoing-Gov. Ted Strickland to appoint his successor. Wagner is in trial this week and was not available for comment Tuesday morning. ........ Wagner’s retirement means there will be at least two new judges on the division in 2011, though the other one will be appointed by Gov.-elect John Kasich. That judge will take the place of Michael T. Hall, who was elected to the Ohio 2nd...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's governor spared the life of a man facing execution Tuesday for killing a 3-year-old, in part because the convict had an undiagnosed genetic condition that led to developmental disabilities and large breasts as a child. Sidney Cornwell's sentence will be commuted to life without the possibility of parole, Gov. Ted Strickland said Monday. The Ohio Parole Board had recommended against mercy for Cornwell, but Strickland said jurors might have chosen a different sentence if they had known of the condition, called Klinefelter Syndrome. The genetic condition caused Cornwell to develop motor and language skills late...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio Democratic Governor Ted Strickland is trying to mount a furious comeback campaign against challenger John Kasich, the former Republican congressman. The latest polls suggest Mr. Strickland has narrowed what had been a comfortable lead for Mr. Kasich in recent months. A new Quinnipiac Poll has Mr. Kasich ahead 49% to 43%. That six-point margin is down from ten points a week ago. "Gov. Ted Strickland has momentum and . . . has made the race for governor competitive," Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, was quoted as saying in the Columbus...

    (CNN) - The gubernatorial battle in Ohio is deadlocked, according to a new poll. A CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Wednesday also indicates that the Republicans hold a wide lead in the fight for the state's open Senate seat. Forty-eight percent of likely voters in Ohio say that if the election were held today, they'd vote for Gov. Ted Strickland, with 47 percent saying they'd vote for former Rep. John Kasich, the GOP challenger, and 3 percent are undecided. Strickland's one-point margin is well within the survey's sampling error. ..... Kasich held a seven-point advantage in a CNN/Time poll conducted...

    Basically, the NRA endorses yet another Democrat Ted Strickland in this election cycle over a conservative pro-gun Republican candidate John Kasich. NRA lobbyist John Hohenwarter made the announcement endorsing Strickland. Then there are threats from the Democrats to Kasich, “knows southern Ohio is not safe for him.”

    Editorial: For governor Kasich is candidate most likely to set Ohio on a better course Sunday, October 10, 2010 03:00 AM The Columbus Dispatch As Ohio copes with economic stagnation, unemployment of 10.1 percent and a looming $8 billion shortfall in the state budget, it needs a resolute leader in the governor's office. While Gov. Ted Strickland is admirable in many respects, leadership and executive ability have not been his strong suits. Therefore, The Dispatch endorses Republican John Kasich for governor. Ohio's budget is facing a crisis unlike any in memory. A deficit of such magnitude speaks to the failure...

    ..... A series of polls out this week show that Strickland has narrowed the gap against Republican challenger John Kasich, and the Democratic Governors Association plans to move more money into Strickland's race with a new ad buy launching later this week. Other races in the state look difficult for Democrats, too, but party strategists point out that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is spending more money in the Buckeye State this fall than in any other state. Nationally, Democratic strategists believe holding the ultimate swing state's governorship will be crucial to President Obama's re-election efforts next year, and in...
  • Gov. Strickland (D, OH) supporter attacks war veteran at rally.

    Do you know this guy? Because he went after a Iraq War veteran at a Ted Strickland rally. Dumped hot coffee on him, then came back later to give said veteran the finger (in case you were wondering whether it was deliberate or not). The cops would like to discuss the matter with the assailant, so if you know him, please contact the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office. Or you could just call the (current) Governor: the way that Ohio Democrats have been behaving lately, that was probably Strickland’s campaign manager. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPmxWLXnAB4&feature=player_embedded

    And the hits from the heartland just keep coming. In 2006, Democrats swept statewide races in Ohio and declared that they had turned the once solidly Republican state into a Democratic stronghold, led by the duo at the top of the ticket, Governor Ted Strickland and Lt. Governor Lee Fisher. Four years later, the two have gone into free-fall, according to two Quinnipiac polls. First, yesterday’s poll shows the incumbent Governor trailing his Republican challenger, John Kasich, by 17 points:

    EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio – Travel west along the old Lincoln Highway to this one-time “pottery capitol,” and the landscape maintains Allegheny mountain vistas as the Ohio River curls through the hills and hollows of Columbiana County. In the place of a once-robust pottery industry, a museum is dedicated to the area’s ceramic plants. The 300 factories of old are now down to one that produces popular, colorful Fiestaware. “We are pretty much devastated,” says Mayor James Swoger of his town’s economy and the state in general. He describes East Liverpool as a stronghold of Democrats, including himself: “I am a...
