A Couple of Events to Fire Up Clevelanders
Here are a couple of things to launch Cleveland-area activists into the GOTV season and keep up the momentum to retain two of the best progressives in Congress, Senator Sherrod Brown and Congresswoman Betty Sutton.
Tomorrow night, Friday September 21, from 5 to 7 p.m., Sherrod Brown will be opening up his new east side campaign office at 12402 Buckeye Road near Shaker Square. Please, Clevelanders, come to this if you can and learn what to tell your friends and neighbors about why they absolutely must vote for Sherrod. Yes, the candidate will be there.
Next Friday, September 28, from 6 to 11 p.m., at the UAW Hall, 17250 Hummel Road, Brook Park, join Ohio's 16th District Democrats in a Get Out the Vote rally.
One of the stars will be Congresswoman Betty Sutton, who is facing fellow incumbent Teabaggin' Jim Renacci in this district. Her polls say they're tied; he has said nothing, which means they're probably tied. So keeping Betty in Congress and tossing a teabagger out on his ass will come down to turning out a LOT of friendly voters in this part of the district, southwestern Cuyahoga County.
They're promising beer, hot dogs, and an appearance by Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, who will be representing some parts of this side of town come January (She's not the least bit threatened by challenger Not Joe the Not Plumber). I can guarantee there will be judicial candidates as well! You'd have to bar the door to keep them away. This should be a good time so bring the family.
