Well, its a good start.

Unlikely; it's still North Kentucky.

What's he about to get caught in or has already been caught in but cut a handshake deal to leave before it got embarrassing?

It is extremely temporary, the district votes 2 to 1 for the GOP candidate every time.

You figure out how to get that more competitive, more power to you.

Since January 23, 2017 there have been 435 sworn in members for a grand total of 6 days. We will never have have all 435 House seats full again.

He's leaving what is effectively a safe seat for the Rs to retake in order to join the Ohio CoC?

Um... ok.

Hooray?

Now I'm going to  federal prison for election fraud. :(

Scandal avoidance behavior detected.  Hopefully, won't work, and whatever live boy/dead girl shiat he's trying to keep hidden will surface anyway.

Resign means the opposite of re-sign? What a country!

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: Unlikely; it's still North Kentucky.


The question is more "how Q-ish will the replacement be?"  Are we going to see a candidate who calls for tax cuts and vague disagreement over things like voting rights, or are we going to see a candidate who makes proposals for eugenics and claims that Bill Gates stole the election for the jewish hivemind using a Catholic as plausible deniability.

Tell them you shot a cop.
Good: They'll welcome you as a hero.
Bad: You'll be the middle of a hero sandwich between two bubba slices of bread.

I was hoping it was a different Ohio Rep named Gym, but I know that's way too much to expect.

They will undoubtedly be worse. The Ohio GOP has yet to find a loon (Gym) or corrupt grifter (Householder) they won't get behind.

It seems a little strange to have 6 open seats.
 
2021-04-19 12:35:05 PM  
Currently the House balance is 218 Democrats and 212 Republicans with five vacancies.

I didn't realize it was that close.  How do those five vacancies look?

About the only thing worse than how deeply red Ohio is, is how many people seem to be in denial about it.

No way in hell a democrat gets that seat.

I assume the same scandal that dumped the GOP speaker of the house a few months ago

Based on who was there, appears to be 4 Dem - 1 GOP.

So, if they get filled and special elections go the way you'd assume, we'll be at 222 -213.

You do get a coupon for a free frozen yogurt at the prison Barber Shop.

Alas, that site contains no information.  Literally.

But I was wondering more, are the five vacancies in districts that are foregone conclusions?
