Seth Morgan Endorsed by 17 State Legislators
From the Seth Morgan for Auditor campaign:
The list of support for Auditor of State candidate Seth Morgan, CPA, continues to expand with a group of influential legislators have announced their public support for his candidacy for Auditor of State.
Legislators for Morgan are:
State Representative John Adams (78th District), Minority Whip
State Representative Pete Beck (67th District)
State Representative Terry Blair (38th District)
State representative Terry Boose (58th District)
State Representative Danny Bubp (88th District)
State Representative Dave Burke (83rd District)
State Representative Courtney Eric Combs (54th District)
State Senator Tim Grendell (18th District)
State Representative Dave Hall (97th District)
State Representative Cliff Hite (76th District)
State Representative Ron Maag (35th District)
State Representative Jarrod Martin (70th District)
State Representative Jeff McClain (82nd District)
State Representative Margaret Ann Ruhl (90th District)
State Representative Barb Sears (46th District)
State Representative Joe Uecker (66th District)
State Representative Lynn Wachtmann (75th District)
“It is becoming clearer with each day that Seth Morgan has the people’s endorsement for this race,” said State Representative and Minority Whip John Adams. “Seth has a great reputation for being an unflinching conservative, true to his word. Seth Morgan is drawing support from all corners of the state, and I can’t think of a better CPA to continue the excellent work of Mary Taylor.”
Just about everyone on this list is instantly recognizable to me as some of the most outspoken conservative legislators in Ohio.
The rumor is, there are other legislators in the House who support Morgan for Auditor, but they won’t go public because those in question supported former State Rep. Matt Dolan of Geauga County, a liberal, for the minority leadership role over Rep. Bill Batchelder of Medina County. (Morgan has been one of the staunchest supporters of Batchelder.) But many legislators have made it know that they won’t be endorsing Dave Yost unless he wins the primary.
However, remember how useful legislative endorsements were for Jim Petro in 2006? Yeah, so do I.
