The Convention Ends

The above video was shot by me on my way out of the Convention last night. The Convention was a rousing success by every measure. The world met our exciting VP candidate and John McCain laid out his background and made his case very effectively.

From a personal point of view, it was highly valuable. I was able to connect to other Republican leaders from across Ohio and to build relationships that can benefit our party in the long term. There is always the next election to think about in this business. The year 2010 promises to be an interesting year politically as we will be fielding statewide candidates including Governor and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. To be sure, the jockeying for these critical spots has begun in earnest and that game officially begins after this election.

I am ready to come home. There is much to do. With early voting beginning in less than 30 days, the election is upon us.

If you are reading this blog and you have never gotten involved in a campaign, I urge you to strongly consider lending your time to our cause. We need grassroots help. Get involved to help us win this fight!
