EXPERT WILLING TO COMMENT:

 

  • Bob Taft of the Department of Political Science at the University of Dayton. Before serving two terms as Ohio's governor, he was Ohio secretary of state for eight years, responsible for overseeing elections in Ohio.

 

Taft admitted he was enjoying an Election Night in which he was not on the ballot. He said Ohio’s 12 Congressional District - the race between Republican Troy Balderson and Democrat Danny O’Connor was one to watch (Balderson won with 51.6% of the vote).  More on that race: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/06/us/politics/ohio-election.html

 

 

STUDENT POLITICAL LEADERS:

 

  • Alexander Seifert, president of the University of Toledo College Democrats

 

Seifert sounded upbeat watching election results roll in from home. At the time he spoke to the

Independent Collegian, Sherrod Brown won his U.S. Senate seat and Marcy Kaptur secured her seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Richard Corday was up in the polls.

 

“I’m very very happy to see..the Democratic candidates are in the lead in almost all of the very important races statewide,” Seifart said.


 

  • Shane Logan, president of the University of Toledo College Republicans:

 

Logan spoke over the phone with the Independent Collegian from an Election Night Watch party. Despite Sherrod Brown's win in the Senate (which “surprised” Logan), he was hopeful, adding “when it’s all said and done” Republican candidate Mike Dewine will be the next Governor of Ohio.

 

In terms of a nationwide picture, “It looks more like a red tsunami than a blue wave,” Logan said.
