In the Republican primary battle for Treasurer for the State of Ohio, voters have a choice between Buckeye Firearms endorsee Sandy O'Brien and Governor Taft's previous running mate, Jennette Bradley.
While Jennette's association with Taft would be reason enough for many to vote for anyone else, the fact is that O'Brien is a great choice no matter who she is compared with.
According to the Columbus Dispatch the race is even. Bradley gets 16%, O'Brien 13%, and 71% were undecided. I'd bet those 71% have never met Sandy O'Brien.
From the article:
- Treasurer Jennette Bradley, who has held her current office since January 2005 after serving two years as Gov. Bob Taft's lieutenant governor, is getting support from only 16 percent of
Republicans, just 3 points more than Sandra O'Brien, Ashtabula County auditor. O'Brien is challenging Bradley's ties to Taft and her stance on such issues as abortion, domestic partner benefits and guns.
In my first conversation with Sandy, I asked her why she was running. She answered, "Because I think Republicans should have a conservative on the ballot." Touché. Add a warm smile, the knowledge that Sandy is a loving wife, mother, and grandmother with energy to burn and you have good idea of who she is.
