Last week, Governor John Kasich’s friends doubled down on the 47% philosophy that cost them the 2012 election.
In response to news of Gov. Kasich’s financial ties to a company receiving public funds, a Republican spokesman claimed Ed FitzGerald wasn’t rich enough to serve as Governor: “Ohio voters wanted a governor with real-world private sector experience, and the Democrats are attacking him with a candidate who has no investments…”
You read that right.
Unlike Gov. Kasich, Ed can’t draw on personal wealth and millions from the wealthy to bankroll his campaign. He didn’t get rich serving as an FBI agent or county prosecutor, but he is more than qualified to be Ohio’s next Governor.
Everyday Ohioans aren’t millionaires, and it just shows how out of touch John Kasich and his friends are to claim wealth should play any part in deciding who’s most dedicated to serving our state.
John Kasich’s record?
Giveaways to his rich friends through JobsOhio. Increased taxes on the middle class. Slashes to education and public safety. And how could we ever forget SB 5?
Let’s reject the Romney-Kasich 47% philosophy. Please help us make John Kasich a one term Governor by donating now.
In 2012, voters rejected Mitt Romney. In 2014, we’re sending Kasich packing, too.
