Mike Turner Votes With Donald Trump 94.4% Of The Time — Much More Than Trump’s Support In The District

FiveThirtyEight shows that Mike Turner votes according to Donald Trump’s dictates 94.4% of the time. According to the FiveThirtyEight analysis, because Trump won OH-10 by 7.3%, a representative for the district would be expected to vote with Trump most of the time (68.7%) — but not, practically, all of the time (94.4%).

I’m wondering why Turner has gone over-board in voting according to the wishes of Donald Trump? Has he been afraid of losing the Republican Primary to an even more faithful Trumpster?

The FiveThirtyEight site breaks down all of the votes:

Note To Mark Fogel: Your Key To Winning OSD-06 Is Explaining Your Plan For “Servant Leadership”

I just made a $25 contribution to the Mark Fogel Campaign, so I’m feeling entitled to start giving Mark advice.

From Mark’s website: “As a young man, my need to serve and desire to fly meant only one thing: going to the Air Force Academy and I was honored to be nominated to attend by Congressman Tony Hall and US Senator John Glenn. At the Academy I learned first-hand what hard work, leadership, and integrity truly mean.

Regardless that Lehner rejected his candidacy for the Ohio Senate, Antani won the Republican nomination and now is the Republican candidate seeking to represent Senate District Six. Mark Fogel is the Democrat seeking election for that same office.

Republican Ohio State Senator, Peggy Lehner represents District 06. She is now 70 (August 5). But I’d bet she is not ready to retire. She is intensely engaged in her work and is very popular with her constituents — but she is term limited. She has served

Wow. Every year this bush amazes me. Every year it gets bigger and more beautiful. I bought it as a starter plant from Siebenthaler’s, about twenty years ago and planted it in the middle of my backyard. I posted a picture last year and four years ago.

Why Did Every Democrat In The Ohio Assembly Reject The — Clearly Superior — LaRosa Proposal For Ohio’s 2020 Primary?

Secretary of State, Frank LaRosa

The primary election plan unanimously agreed to by the Ohio Assembly will dramatically reduce voter participation. Of course, participation will be suppressed at this point, regardless. But the plan approved by the Assembly advances the worst solution to a difficult problem.

I am flabbergasted that every Democrat in the Ohio Assembly agreed to this absurd decision. I can’t understand why our Democratic members of the Assembly did not support the clearly superior plan proposed by Secretary of State, Frank Larosa. I’m hoping there is more to this story than I know.

If the
