Columbus has the 2nd most Somalis in the nation, combined with illegal aliens, this alone accounts for the change. Look for these people to confiscate money through their elected officials just as is happening in Mexifornia.

I have to think at times that bringing the Somalis here was a plot by Bill Clinton to swing Ohio permanently to the left.

Some of the other problems result from the voter fraud of double voting university students.

Way to ignore the elephant in the room!

The GOP has run schlubs against Coleman.

Schlubs like Dorothy Teater, William Todd and Earl Smith.

Coleman had no GOP opponent in 2003.

None!

WTF, GOP?

Did Clinton get the Ohio GOP to take a knee in Franklin County?

In the last election in Columbus, the GOP got 30% of a vote with a RINO.

Nothing indicates that Coleman runs a corrupt administration, and he pleases the social values of the white liberals that fund him, and pleases the minorities by not being white and bashing the eeevil white GOP.

The article indicates 150K more non-whites in the county, fundamental AWR means that they will not vote GOP. The only way the GOP can get their votes is to be a center-left party and piss on their own base.

That 150K is half of the Occupier's margin, the other half can be chalked up to the growth of government and influence of the education system.

One might claim the GOP could be doing better if it ran someone like it did in the parallel of Indianapolis, but it was against a corrupt opponent, making it far easier.

As to not running anyone, yes that's stupid. Even a name on ballot is better than nothing.

I presume that their mindset is "if you are going to get curb stomped, why try?"

The Democrats didn't challenge the Franklin County Prosecutor last year, now I guess that means he's probably a RINO, but oftentimes in local politics if the incumbent is popular, you don't do anything.

GOP does the same thing in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County, the Executive candidate in 2010, didn't even live in the county.

But why is it that the Somalis weren't targeted into Chicago or Boston?

Illinois isn't a swing state, neither is Massachusetts.

Ohio is.

To paraphrase Hillary Huma loins on her breath Clinton,' Columbus? Detroit? Mogadishu? What difference does it make'...Camden? Columbus? Again, at this point what difference does it make?'
