I try to keep all the events posted for people at www.electesrati.com/events, as far as I know, I’m the only one who does this, and certainly the only one who videotapes every event and posts them to youtube. Tomorrow night we have the UpDayton forum at Wiley’s Comedy Club. Trust me, being able to drink […]

For the last 4 years- or 4 political races- if you’re counting, I’ve been videotaping candidates nights and posting them on YouTube.

All the Democrats running for Congress in OH-10 were there- but Congressman Turner couldn’t be bothered- nor could his opposition. Despite a very Republican crowd- […]

Tonight starts the series of meet the candidates for Congress events. We have have one per night all week – and then next week.
