Are you in Cincinnati, #OIHO? You just might be an operative

November 4, 2012

Ohio, especially southwestern Ohio, is awash in political operatives of all stripes. Cincinnati is my hometown, and I can tell you this isn’t the norm. (Honestly, it can be a little sleepy.) But now– three days out from the most important election in our lifetime– the pols and politicians’re everywhere.

On the road to Middletown in an AFP van this morning, we passed a minivan with two Mitt Romney bumper stickers on it. The license plate? “Eyes Open”. According to our driver, it was a Mitt Romney campaign vehicle.

You can’t throw a rock without hitting a pollster or a news crew from the PBS News Hour or Fox News. Or “elite” members of the new media. Proof:



R. Stacy McCain (The American Spectator) and Ali Akbar (National Bloggers Club president) doing show prep for their special Ohio BlogTalkRadio broadcast, The American Resolve. It aired tonight. Listen to the half-hour podcast at the link. Or read the new Ohio numbers post by The Other McCain here.

    Thoughts on the ground in Ohio (or as Obama calls it #OIHO) from the newest citizen journalist Becca Lower. Somewhere up above Andrew Breitbart is smiling!
