Team Obama: We're winning Ohio among early voters

By Jonathan Easley - 10/19/12 07:39 AM ET

The Obama campaign on Friday circulated a memo claiming to be well ahead of Mitt Romney among early voters in the critical battleground state of Ohio.

“Today we are ahead of where we were at this time against John McCain — and ahead of Mitt Romney,” national field director Jeremy Bird wrote. “Republicans are similarly talking up their ground game and early vote numbers, but their assertions rest on much shakier ground.”

No Republican presidential candidate has ever lost Ohio and gone on to win the election.

Republicans have touted their ground game in the crucial state, claiming they've closed the gap with Democrats.

President Obama has led in Ohio throughout this cycle, but polls have tightened in recent weeks. According to the Real Clear Politics average of polls, Obama leads Romney by 2.4 percentage points in the Buckeye State.

It's time to turn UA blue!

In 1928, Republicans pledged “a chicken in every pot.” Ninety-some years later, the GOP has forgotten that many Americans not only don’t have a chicken, they don’t even have a pot to cook it in. 

Romney says he wants to get into the Oval Office so he can strengthen the middle class by reducing the debt and maintaining tax cuts.  But trickle down economics have strengthened only the bank accounts of his millionaire pals, Wall Street traders, and special interest groups. And the rest of the 99% are suffering.

Housing Needed for Campaign Staff/Volunteers

2012 Campaign staff are pouring into Columbus and they need housing!  Some will be here for a weekend, some for a week, some for several weeks, and some until the election!  They will be working with the Obama campaign, the Sherrod Brown campaign, and ODP. There are also interns who need housing, as well as international and out-of-state volunteers. This is a great way to help the campaign without ever leaving your home or writing a check. It's a very rewarding experience and really is a lifesaver for those you take in!
