OH-05: Gov. Strickland Says Weirauch Has Ohio Values In New Ad

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Gov Ted Strickland appears in OH-05 Democrat Robin Weirauch's newest TV ad and praises her as "one of us, she is not a person of privilege." The 30-second spot is now on YouTUBE and can be viewed by clicking this link. Strickland steers clear of attacking Weirauch's opponent, GOP State Rep. Bob Latta. Instead, the governor emphasizes her NW Ohio roots and says she won't be the kind of politician who goes to the Capitol and takes on airs.

"This region of Ohio needs someone who will be an advocate for them, not someone who is going to go to Washington and forget where they are from. We all know Washington is broken."

Weirauch's biography is here, and Strickland's words mesh well with her campaign slogan, "Homegrown Values."

Strickland is extremely popular around the state and carried Ohio's 5th Congressional District in 2006 when he was elected governor. It was a feat because the district routinely votes Republican. If Weirauch wins the special election Tuesday, Dec. 11, she will be the first Democrat to hold the OH-05 House seat since 1938.
