Remember When John Kasich Looked Vulnerable?

The Campaign Spot decision desk isn’t quite ready to call the Ohio Governor’s race for incumbent Republican John Kasich, but the outlook seems to get better each day:

A potential mass exodus from Ed FitzGerald’s gubernatorial campaign is afoot, with several of the Democratic nominee’s top aides and experienced Ohio political consultants transitioning away from a campaign seemingly under a siege of negativity.

FitzGerald’s campaign manager Nicholas Buis and communication director Daniel McElhatton have left their posts. Press secretary Lauren Hitt may also leave, and consultants Aaron Pickrell and Louis Capobianco also are leaving, numerous sources said.

FitzGerald won’t really be in trouble until he loses his driver; one part of the “siege of negativity” is the revelation that the candidate drove without a license for ten years.
