Saturday's visit by former Congressman John Kasich, who is a commentator for the Fox News cable TV channel, will give local Republicans a look at a man who might run for governor in 2010 against the incumbent Democratic governor, Ted Strickland. An article in the Columbus Dispatch quotes him as saying, "I've made it clear to people that I'm going to look at the governor's office. I hope that Ted Strickland will do a good job so I won't have to go around the state doing this stuff."

Kasich is the main speaker for the 2008 Spring Gala, co-hosted by the Erie County Republican Party and the Huron County Republican Women's Club. The event will be held at 6:45 p.m. Saturday at Mesenburg's Plaza Place, 545 West Main St., Huron (social hour begins at 6 p.m.).  Tickets are $25 and may be purchased by calling 419-967-5462 or 419-433-2741.

Given how the Gov. broke the collective bargaining laws in the trooper prank, he deserves to be challenged and defeated in the next election.

I agree. Strickland is only trying to get his name out there, especially with the rumors that he might be called to be on the VP ticket.

He announced his candidacy yesterday during the 2008 Spring Gala @ Mesenburg. Obviously, there was NOTHING in the Register.
