Ed Fitzgerald was drawing pathetic crowds before. But it’s August and campaigns are in full swing. If the size of crowds at your campaign stops are getting lower, you have a serious base problem.
Yesterday, Fitzgerald visited Lorain, a city dominated by Democrats. He spoke to six people. At the Democratic Party headquarters.
“It was a mistake,” FitzGerald said to about a half-dozen people at the Lorain County Democrats headquarters. “I was careless. I corrected it, but it took too long to correct it. I have no excuse for it.”
He also made a stop in Bowling Green. At least he roughly tripled his audience there.
FitzGerald, whose campaign has been engulfed in controversy for a week because of his personal actions, answered questions for 25 minutes after speaking to a crowd of about 20 at Grounds for Thought coffee shop here.
Meanwhile, on the same day, check out the crowds who came out to see Governor Kasich.
There was a serious enthusiasm gap in this race, and the revelations about Fitzgerald’s character only made it worse. These photos are proof.
Fitz has a serious issue with a depressed base. And it is likely to bring down the entire Democratic ticket in Ohio.
