From Fox 8 News:
Democrat Lee Fisher says it’s not too late for him to charge ahead in the race for Ohio’s open U.S. Senate seat even though he has trailed in both fundraising and recent polls.
Fisher’s campaign will begin airing its first television ad this week.
He told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday that it’s no surprise he’s the underdog because he’s been outspent by a wide margin by former congressman Rob Portman, who has been airing ads all summer.
Campaign finance numbers have shown Fisher trailing his Republican opponent 9-to-1 in fundraising.
Fisher, currently Ohio’s lieutenant governor, says fundraising is picking up. But he adds it will be a week-to-week decision on how much time he can buy on TV.
Yeah, sure, Lee. This race is totally a toss-up…or was, a few months ago.
