Few analysts have been talking much about Republicans losing either house of the Ohio legislature, but with the toxic environment for the GOP in the state, it's hard to rule it out as a possibility. I bring this up because CNN's exit poll in Ohio shows Democrat Ted Strickland winning 65% of female voters and 59% of male voters. If his margin is really that big, he might have some coattails.
Written and compiled by staff writers and editors, GOVERNING View is an on-the-ground, and sometimes behind-the-scenes, look at the topics we're covering in print and online. From notes on what's up in statehouses, county courthouses and city halls, to encounters with people, places and things, GOVERNING View is a window into the side of state and local government you don't always see.
