    Fitz launches his first TV ad

    by  • July 16, 2014 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Today, the Fitzgerald campaign launched their first television ad. It’s OK but pretty bland. He comes off looking like “Opie Taylor for Governor”. Childish and weak. But at least he didn’t come out of the gate going totally negative. The problem for Ed is that he is buying just 500 points each in two...

    by  • July 16, 2014 • Uncategorized • 19 Comments

    Amateur hour at Team Fitzgerald continues

    by  • June 12, 2014 • Uncategorized • 2 Comments

    The Fitzgerald campaign just sent out a fundraising email attacking Governor Kasich. That isn’t news, obviously. But they included another example of how clueless they really are. Below is the graphic they used. Who’s that guy sitting next to Kasich? It’s Tom Vilsack. Democrat Tom Vilsack who serves as President Obama’s Secretary of Agriculture....

    by  • June 6, 2014 • Uncategorized • 0 Comments

    Yesterday, we showed you the mostly negative reactions to Ed Fitzgerald’s adsurd “win tax” proposal. In an effort to quell the damage, his imported, out-of-state campaign staff began tweeting quotes from Plain Dealer editorial staff.
