As you know, next week is a crucial vote on Referendum No. 2 in Ohio, which needs to pass in order to put the collective bargaining reform bill into effect.  Polling does not look good.  There also is another referendum on education reform.

Thanks to a reader who is volunteering in the get out the vote effort:

We saw a number of interesting cars in the parking lot. As you may know, passing Issues 2 & 3 have national implications. The response to the phone bank calls was mixed, but the parking lot sure was interesting. The patriots were out. Anything you can do to support 2 & 3 would be appreciated. We were supported today by The Ohio Project (health care Issue 3) and Americans For Prosperity (Issue 2) but there hasn’t been much else other than a few ads. Rumor is the Republican Party is taking a back seat.
