Ted Strickland comes to Georgetown

stricklandBy Martha Jacob –

Former Ohio governor and current U.S. Senate candidate Ted Strickland came to Brown County on June 9.
Strickland stopped at the Country Inn in Georgetown to talk to supporters about his senate race.
He was introduced by Ken McNeely, who is running for the 66th Ohio House district seat.
“We’ve got to get Ted in the U.S. Senate.  Everybody knows that as governor, he was faced with a tremendous responsibility because of the economic recession.  And one thing is for certain…Ted did his job as governor, McNeely said.”
Strickland began to speak, first addressing the presence of Charlie Carlier,  a candidate for the 14th Ohio Senate district and Ralph Jennings, candidate for county commissioner.
Strickland then turned to discussing how the Kasich administration has affected Brown County.
“One of the things that you felt here were the cuts in the local government funds.  Everywhere I go, what I hear is that those cuts have made it very difficult to support local services…I gave John Kasich a recovering economy.  More jobs were created in my last year in office than in either of his first two years in office.  And I did it while protecting the local government fund and protecting the schools.”
He then turned to the national picture.
“A lot is at stake in this election.  The presidency, control of the senate and the future of the U.S. Supreme Court is at stake,” Strickland said.
He also talked about how his race against current Ohio Senator Rob Portman was shaping up.
“19 million dollars has been spent against me so far in this election…despite that, the latest poll has be tied 41 to 41 (with Senator Portman).  And I’ll take it, because I’m running against an incumbent senator, I’ve had 19 million dollars spent against me and I really haven’t started fighting back yet.  I think I can win this race,” Strickland said.
He also discussed one of his priorities if elected.
“I think we can agree on rebuilding (the infrastructure) of this country.  We’re not doing anything to build this country right now…we ought to be able to come together as republicans and democrats to do this,” Strickland said.
Following his remarks, Strickland spoke to The News Democrat.
He addressed the idea that many people have already made up thier minds who they will be voting for.
“I think there is a relatively small percentage of people who are pursuadable.  Unfortunately, this country is really polarized now.  There are people in both parties who get in their camp and they refuse to consider any argument from the other side,” Strickland said.
He added that he was appealing to the center by talking about his experience.
“I think you talk about being a reasonable person. I talk a lot about my experience as governor working with republicans,” Strickland said.
He added that he thought that his race against Portman will have national implications.
“If I win this senate seat, it is almost certain that democrats will have majority control of the senate,” Strickland said.
“If I lose this race, that is much less likely to happen.”
