Dayton Daily News: Jacobs Can Win in a General!
In OH-02, it's Endorsements Gone Wild!
(EGW: HA, that would be a kick-ass video . . . Sinnard showing off his stones . . . Parker trying to get girls to do things for beans . . . Thor trying to convice chicks he is on the West Wing . . . and Vic and Gabby in the Hot Body Contest.)
Sinnard: Cinci Right to Life
Wulsin: Cinci Enquirer, Tyrone Yates*, Catherine Barrett*, Priscilla O'Donnell*, Cecil Thomas*, David Crowley*, Laketa Cole*, Nathaniel Jones*.
We have to put an astrisks (*) beside many of Vics endorsements, cause she has a tendancy to suggest endorsements she has not recieved.
Thor Jacobs: Dayton Daily News, John Cranley, Cecil Thomas.
Here are some highlights from today's Dayton Daily News Endorsement:
HEADLINE: Our view: Jacobs best bet in crowded field
Of them (the five people who are seeking the Democratic nomination), the person in the best position to take advantage if Democrats have a shot in the fall is Thor Jacobs . . . He seems to have the most sophisticated campaign operation and has made the most progress in winning endorsements from people known in the district. He can articulate a mainstream Democratic philosophy. . . Democrats need to put their best vote-getter forward . . . Mr. Jacobs seems to have the best start on making the fall race.
. . . Jeff Sinnard and Jim Parker, believe the best chance for Democrats in this district lies in moving to the right on issues such as religion, abortion and guns.
Dr. Victoria Wells . . . might need a more compatible district.
Public-school teacher Gaby Downey has been credited by her opponents with making a good public presentation of the issues.
*****UPDATE: Just got this from Jacobs For Congress Campaign:
Labor steps up to offer support for Jacobs:
The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 212; the Plumbers, Pipe Fitters & Mechanical Equipment Service Local 392; and the Roofers Local 42, all of Hamilton County, have all also enthusiastically endorsed Thor Jacobs in the 2nd Congressional District Democratic primary. In additional, Boilermakers Local 105 of Piketon, Ohio in Pike County located at the far Eastern end of the district is lending Jacobs its support.
"Thor understands the real issues working families face today," said William Koester who is Business Manager of Plumbers, Pipe Fitters & Mechanical Equipment Service Local Union 392. "We need an independent, intelligent Congressman like him in Washington, fighting to protect us, not the profits of CEO's."
Jacobs is the only candidate that has received any labor endorsement in this race for Congress.
