<P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT color=#191970>Anybody know anything about this Strickland guy? He's recently thrown his name in the hat. I understand he's for "letting the people decide". He is pro gun and has a 100% rating from the NRA. He is what they would call a conservative Democrat, something you don't see too much of. If not him, you've got the three Republicans that are running (Montgomery, Blackwell and Petro), which will just be more of the same. Then there's that spineless Mayor of Columbus, Coleman. Who's gonna vote for him?</FONT></P>

<P>Strickland is a very good candidate for Gov.&nbsp; He has a strong track record, and the best thing that I can say about him is that he has voted against the Congress payraise everytime it is brougt up.&nbsp; The biggest thing I can say is that when my father passed away at 53 of a heart attack, he was a school teacher in southern ohio for 20 years, Ted Strickland our local representative showed up and gave the school a flag that had flown over the U.S. Capital building.&nbsp; This man has my vote for Gov.&nbsp; </P>

<P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I am a die hard conservative, and I will vote for Strickland.&nbsp; He is a good guy no way is he a liberal.&nbsp; He got an A from The NRA.&nbsp; His office is up the street from me.&nbsp; I will pay him a visit to talk the issues sometime next year.&nbsp; I am considering backing him.&nbsp; I still have to research him, and will keep you posted on my findings.&nbsp; In Ohio a gungrabber has no chance.&nbsp; </P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </P>
