Two Liberal Republicans Head Up Socialist Third Frontier Campaign
Matt Cox, for those of you who remember the fun that was Right Angle Blog in 2005, was gubernatorial candidate Jim Petro’s campaign manager who quit just as the polls turned south. He was a terrible thug and I’m sorry to see this guy is still around in politics. I’ll have much more to say about him as this campaign continues. And liberal, pro-abortion Jo Ann Davidson just won’t go away to a nursing home:
Two former national political leaders from Ohio have been tapped to lead the campaign to renew the state’s Third Frontier program on the May 4 ballot.
Jo Ann Davidson, a former Ohio House speaker and Republican National Committee co-chairwoman, will be teaming up with David Wilhelm of Bexley, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and national manager of President Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign. The announcement was made yesterday at a meeting of the Third Frontier Commission and advisory board.
Matt Cox, who helped run Republican Jim Petro’s campaign for governor in 2006, has been selected as campaign manager. A committee of business groups and other supporters called United For Jobs and Ohio’s Future has been created.
The last time I read about Cox, he was in the Dayton Daily News singing the praises of former disgraced Ohio Lottery Director Mike Dolan. What a loser.
Sadly, I can’t imagine there would be a well-funded campaign in opposition to Issue 1, since all the campaign contributions and special interests are on the side of corporate welfare and free money.
But if my fellow conservatives and TEA party activists really want to focus on changing the political culture in Ohio, shutting down the Third Frontier and making it politically expensive for its supporters would be a great place to start.
