Ohioans are still recovering from the brutal, expensive political marathon that the 2012 campaign was. But Ohio Public Radio’s Karen Kasler says it didn’t take long before some partisans to start talking about the next campaign.
On election night, staffers with the Ohio Democratic Party started distributing pre-printed signs that read: “Kasich – You’re Next”.
“John Kasich will not run unopposed for the next two years. We will challenge him every step of the way,” says Ohio Democratic Party chair Chris Redfern
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says he'll promote more campaign finance disclosure after prevailing in Tuesday's election against close to $40 million in undisclosed outside spending.
The Democrat said he received dozens of congratulatory calls from colleagues after keeping his seat despite the heaviest onslaught of third-party cash in the nation. Brown beat Republican Josh Mandel in the closely watched race.
Brown said his victory proved well-funded industries seeking favor in Washington can't intimidate a Congress member who has a strong middle-class message.
