More Post Mortem
Here is another thought. The GOP vastly overestimated their hold on the SW part of the state, specifically Brown County and Adams and a couple of others. Greg Hartmann, R candidate for Sec of State, and a fine Clerk of Courts for Clermont County, I do not recall him coming to any of these counties at all. Blackwell only came down here in the later days, and did not attend big events or give enough notice to party machinery here to round up the base.
The GOP just looked at the 2004 map and saw rural counties went for Bush in big numbers and just assumed, Hell, we don't have to campaign there, we don't have to do a damn thing except show up.....Well, guess what? Just having your name on the ballot doesn't work. Note to the GOP: DON'T TAKE RURAL VOTES FOR GRANTED....EVER....AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
