Since the narrative wasn’t stale the other 9,000 times the press reported it, today’s Toledo Blade repeats the same argument that the Ohio Senate Race is a referendum on Bush:
Memo to Ohio voters: Expect to hear the name of President George W. Bush a lot in the campaign for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat.
Not from Republican Rob Portman, who worked for President Bush as budget director and trade representative, but rather from Lee Fisher, the Democratic nominee for the seat now held by Republican U.S. Sen. George Voinovich.
The press must be the last place Lee Fisher can get his message out. He’s essentially broke, so earned media is all he has.
