Thanks to lot of TV-Ad Time Democrats may have moved into a very slight lead here. This will change once the Democratic Primary is resolved on Tuesday.

Merlin Update…..Ohio Governor race…..

Hi Dog again!

Fmr. Rep. John Kasich (R) still has the edge over Incumbent Governor Ted Strickland, although Strickland has  narrowed the gap from a 9 point deficit, in early December, to a 7-Point deficit in January.

Kasich is supposed to announce his Running Mate at a 3 pm ET Press Conference. If Reports are to be believed, State Auditor Mary Taylor will join him on the Governor Ticket. Early Observations in the Buckeye State are that Taylor will boost his Chances even further.

Kasich selects Taylor as Running Mate.
