"Tom and I will lead a united Republican party to victory this November," said Blackwell. "As governor, job creation will be my top priority. I will ensure that Ohio controls government spending so we can cut taxes and create jobs."Every Democrat in the state will be running against Ken Blackwell. The liberal press will be behind Strickland every step of the way.
"I am inspired by Ohio's economic history, filled with people of all nations, faiths and races who made things, grew things and invented things," added Blackwell. "America was built in Ohio, using products from our factories, farms and research facilities. Ohio's economy was the pride of the world and it will be great again."
"Tom and I will work with our legislative leaders to reshape our state's priorities, restore our economy and get Ohioans working again," said Blackwell. "Together, we will bring businesses and jobs back to our state. Together, we will restore the greatness and prosperity of Ohio."
Now is the time and this is the hour.
