Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (OH-15) supports the Buckeyes!

The Hill:

Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio) went “nuts” for the Ohio State Buckeyes on Wednesday.

Hazelnuts, that is, one pound of them, courtesy of a bet she won against Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.). Kilroy had bet Wu that the Buckeyes football team would defeat his University of Oregon Ducks in the 2010 Rose Bowl, which was played on New Year’s Day. They did, 26-17, and now, after three months, Kilroy collected on her bet.

The next paragraph has an error. You may want to contact the author of the article, Christina Wilkie, and tell her to correct it.

Her timing was great: Former Oregon State (It should be OHIO STATE!) quarterback Troy Smith, now of the National Football League’s Baltimore Ravens, was also visiting Capitol Hill. And to top the day off, Kilroy wore a scarlet-and-gray Buckeyes jersey as she proposed a resolution that passed in the House, with the entire Ohio delegation co-sponsoring it, to congratulate the team, which has won 44 games in the last four years, on setting a new record at Ohio State....


One of Jon Husted's opponents had something to say about him.

The Mansfield North Central Ohio Tea Party Association, a non-partisan group consisting of concerned voters in Richland and surrounding counties, hosted a Conservative Candidates Town Hall Meeting Tuesday evening speakers included Tom Ganley, U.S. Senate Candidate as well as Seth Morgan, Ohio Auditor of State Candidate and Sandra O'Brien, Ohio Secretary of State Candidate.

O'Brien spoke about her fellow Republican opponent Jon Husted. She said Husted voted to increase gasoline tax by six-cents per gallon, voted to increase Ohio's sales tax, and voted to implement the new Commercial Activity Tax which now places a tax on our food. O'Brien said she has a clear record and is a true fiscal conservative.....

OMG!!! Someone actually said something negative about the golden boy of the Ohio GOP, Husted. I love it!

** FYI: Rep. Bart Stupak is Michael Moore's congressman.
