OH-15: Borntrager to Manage Kilroy (D) Campaign
The Columbus Dispatch blog The Daily Briefing is reporting that Ohio Democratic Party Communications Director Randy Borntrager will become the campaign manager for Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Columbus) in the 15th Ohio Congressional District. Borntrager told the Dispatch that he expects her campaign to have enough money raised by the end of the year to wage a 10-week television blitz down the home stretch.
I spoke to Borntrager on the phone moments ago and wished him well. He said that he will stay in his current post until mid-November and then start his duties with the Kilroy campaign after a few weeks off. Although there is no official opponent for Kilroy at this time, he is not taking anything for granted. "You never know who could jump in," he said. After last year's agonizingly close finish, he is absolutely determined to do everything he can to get Kilroy across the finish line with a big lead in 2008.
