GOP Candidate for President: Rick Santorum -- It is no secret that I have not been wild about this field; but having heard Santorum speak, he's got my vote.
US Senate: Josh Mandel -- As much as I wish Josh would have finished his term as Treasurer, he is the best candidate in this field. He would serve us well in DC.
OH-02: Jean Schmidt -- Jean has proven her conservative credentials over the years. She may have made a few mistakes along the way, but Club for Growth, the National Taxpayers Union, and the National journal all rate her very high.
OH-03: John Adams -- Adams is a smart legislator and he is the right guy for this race.
OH-05: Bob Latta -- Latta has been effective in DC and he is one of the few in the Ohio delegation on the cutting edge of digital communications with his constituents.
OH-07: Bob Gibbs -- I had my doubts about Gibbs, but he has shown what he is made of since taking this seat. He deserves another term to continue his work.
OH-08: John Boehner -- He's the Speaker of the House for goodness sakes...
OH-09: Joe the Plumber -- The general is going to be a fun race to watch (heck, the Dem primary has been entertaining!). If we get the right candidate, this one will be competitive. Joe is the right guy.
OHIO GENERAL ASSEMBLY
6th Ohio Senate: Paul Isaacs -- I hope this one is the upset of the night. Peggy Lehner has been a disappointment and it is time to end her career before she does any more damage.
14th Ohio Senate: Paul Hall -- While Joe Uecker would also be acceptable, I've known Paul longer and am confident that he would represent the district very well.
27th Ohio House: Pete Stautberg -- It took us years to get rid of Tom Brinkman, let's put the last nail in the coffin of his political career.
28th Ohio House: Mike Wilson -- Mike deserves a second shot at Connie Pillich in the general.
51st Ohio House: Wes Retherford -- Yes, he has no opponent, but we ALWAYS support contributors to the program here at WMD.
65th Ohio House: John Becker -- Even if John weren't a "friend of the show" he would get my endorsement. John has integrity and is principle-centered. We need those qualities in Columbus.
66th Ohio House: Nick Owens -- This young man has been impressive. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who has worked harder for the win than Eric. While Doug Green would also be acceptable, Owens gets the edge here.
73rd Ohio House: Eric Spicer -- Everything I hae heard about Eric makes me believe he is the right guy to send to Columbus. The incumbent is no good, so it is time for some new blood.
Commissioner: Chuck Furmon -- Chuck is one of the few "old guard" Butler County Republicans who deserves re-election. Chuck has worked tirelessly on behalf of his constituents and has the experience required to keep the county on track.
Clerk of Courts: Mary Swain -- Mary has done a tremendous job of cleaning up the mess left by Hurricane Cindy.
