And you were wondering what all the fuss is over a state legislature race in the southwestern corner of Ohio. After all, Mike Wilson will be only one of 99 state legislators. Why then is he the number two targeted nationwide race by Washington based DLCC? Why does Mike’s opponent plan to spend between $500,000 and $750,000 to defeat him?

The Washington based Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee [DLCC] is the organization behind about half of the smear ads attacking Mike; they describe the OH 28 race as “a crucial combat zone in one of this fall's hidden, high-impact battles: the fight for control of the state legislative chambers that next year will redraw the electoral map.” We have to return common sense conservative values to Columbus. If we allow the Democrats to control the Ohio House, we lose the Apportionment Board. If we don’t elect Kasich, Husted and Yost, we lose the Apportionment Board and allow the Democrats to redraw and control every state and congressional district in Ohio for the next 10 years.

Recently, the Ohio Elections Commission found probable cause that the TV ads targeting Mike Wilson contained false statments--lies. You know that we cannot match the Democrats financial resources in this race as they have an incumbent raising thousands from special interest groups with their snouts in the dirty trough of government money. But you should also know that it is not too late to help Mike Wilson defeat the uber-liberal, committed progressive Connie Pillich. We are still going door to door, there are sign waves scheduled, phone bank efforts are always in need of additional volunteers, outside poll workers on Election Day. To volunteer right now, contact

It is the strength of Mike’s message, the hard work of all our volunteers, and the support of everyone who wants a strong and vibrant Ohio that will make the difference in this race. Mike will win because Ohio Deserves Better.
