Strickland ran again for the 6th District seat in 1992, once again facing Bob McEwen, who had suffered some political damage by being associated with the House banking scandal. The 6th District had been combined with the old 10th District when Ohio lost two seats in Congress following the 1990 census, and now covered a huge area stretching from Lebanon in Warren County to Marietta in Washington County on the opposite side of the state.

Patrick J. Buchanan, Dan Quayle and Oliver North came to Ohio to campaign for McEwen, but Strickland narrowly won in the general election on November 3, 1992.

Congressional career

Strickland was first elected to Congress in 1992. In 1994, the Republican wave swamped Strickland, who narrowly lost his seat to Republican Frank Cremeans. However, in 1996, Strickland won his seat back, again narrowly, taking office in 1997 (the 105th Congress). He was reelected four more times without serious opposition, and even ran unopposed in 2004. Strickland served on the Energy and Commerce Committee and the Veterans' Affairs Committee. Frank A.

Strickland easily won the Democratic primary on May 2, 2006, winning 80 percent of the vote.[2] He was challenged by Republican Secretary of State Ken Blackwell, Libertarian economist Bill Peirce and Green Bob Fitrakis in the November general election, but won handily on November 7, 2006, capturing 60% of the vote.

Media strategy

Strickland began his media campaign for the general election in July by purchasing significant airtime on Christian radio stations throughout the state. The ad cites a verse from the Book of Micah calling one "to do justice, to love kindness and to walk humbly with our God," principles Strickland says he has held throughout his life. His televised ads began airing in late September and are available for viewing on his website.[7] The Book of Micah (Hebrew: ספר מיכה) is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible and the Christian Old Testament, traditionally attributed to Micah the Prophet. ...


Republican support

Strickland's candidacy received some support from Republicans, indicated by many of the pollsters covering the race.[8] Additionally, a number of high profile Republicans publicly announced their support for Strickland at a press conference on September 12,[9] and Strickland's website has launched "Republicans For Strickland,"[10] which lists over 340 registered Republican endorsers. is the 255th day of the year (256th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...


Gubernatorial career

After drawing criticism for running a "close to the vest" campaign with few specific details about how he would change Ohio as governor, Strickland became more outspoken upon taking office. He has made education a centerpiece of his goals as governor, hoping to come up with ways to get more Ohioans to afford state-controlled college, graduate from in-state public universities, and thus stay in-state for quality jobs. Although his Congressional record gave reason for many critics to claim during the campaign he is unfriendly to taxpayers and will carry this trend to the gubernatorial office[11], he has made some efforts to investigate state government spending and have minimal tax increases in his "State of the State" address in March 2007.[12] he emphasized a goal to over-ride the free market and freeze or minimally increase tuition in the next few years, and have minimal tax increases across the board. He appointed Eric Fingerhut as a state chancellor of higher education. He also wants to shift funding away from Ohio's private universities towards public universities.[13] While the Republican-led legislature, led by State House Speaker Jon Husted, agreed with the need to emphasize education, they disagreed on how to keep costs down without raising taxes.[14] Nevertheless, Strickland overcame nearly all of these disagreements with the legislature to pass a unanimous budget of $52 billion over the two fiscal years beginning July 2007 with line-item vetoes; this unanimous approval of the budget was the state's first in 84 years.[15] On the pre-collegiate level of education, Strickland has pushed to cut funding of school vouchers, which critics claim will reduce education choice available to the public. He opposes federally subsidized abstinence-only sex education programs.[16] [17] Eric David Fingerhut (b. ... An education voucher, commonly called a school voucher, is a certificate by which parents are given the ability to pay for the education of their children at a school of their choice, rather than the public school to which they were assigned. ... An early 20th century post card documents the problem of unwanted pregnancy. ...


In addition to shoring up the state's education bureaucracy, one of Strickland's primary economic plans has been working to help bring jobs in the coal and energy industries to Ohio by emphasizing ethanol production and other non-petroleum based energy sources.[18]


Strickland has also emphasized health care. In addition, on the issue of capital punishment, Strickland has thus far delayed three executions until further review.[19] Strickland refused to block three additional executions, including two that eventually occurred.[20] The March 20, 2007 execution of Kenneth Biros, which Strickland refused to stop, was later stayed by the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati.[21] Death penalty, death sentence, and execution redirect here. ... The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is a federal court with appellate jurisdiction over the district courts in the following districts: Western and Eastern Districts of Kentucky Western and Eastern Districts of Michigan Northern and Southern Districts of Ohio Western, Middle, and Eastern Districts of Tennessee... Cincinnati redirects here. ...


Strickland voted against partial-birth abortion while in the U.S. House, but has said he would veto a near-total abortion ban proposed by Ohio State House member Tom Brinkman (R-Cincinnati) that does not include rape, incest or health exceptions.[22] Partial-birth abortion (PBA) is a non-medical term used to refer to some late-term abortion procedures. ... Thomas E. Brinkman, Jr. ...


Arguably the biggest setback to occur during his short career as Governor was the loss of a computer backup tape that contained the names and Social Security numbers of 64,000 state employees and their families, and 225,000 other state taxpayers. Especially troubling was that a 22-year-old intern was entrusted to this tape and it was stolen out of his unlocked car; however, the administration has insisted that because of the technical nature of the coding it has not been accessed.[23]


In spite of such setbacks, his success with bringing the legislature together with his budget and the state's overall desire for change after the Taft years have resulted in some of the highest approval and lowest disapproval ratings in Ohio gubernatorial history: 61% approval, 15% disapproval, including 54%/19% splits from Republicans (July 2007).[24] July 2007 is the seventh month of that year. ...


Strickland's approval ratings have dropped due to the state's economy and from Obama supporters (likely due to his support of Hillary Clinton.) Young voters, black voters and independents--considered to be overwhelming supporters of Obama--gave him neutral-to-negative ratings in April 2008, not long after the March primaries. However, he still enjoyed an overall approval rating of 54% and a disapproval of 39%. (April 2008).[25] Additionally, in spite of the state's economic woes, the state unemployment rate has actually increased less than the national average--as of February 2008, the state unemployment was 5.3% compared to a national 4.8%, and in March, the numbers were 5.7% and 5.1%, compared to gaps of over 1% early in Strickland's administration and during much of Taft's administration. [26] April 2008 is the fourth month of the current leap year. ...


Vice Presidential speculation

Although Strickland became Governor just a little over a year ago, due to his popularity in a key swing state, he is frequently mentioned as a possible Democratic Vice Presidential nominee in the 2008 election. However, his age might be a problem. He will be 67 on Inauguration Day, and, were he to serve 2 terms as Vice-President, he would be 75 and almost certainly incapable of running for President in 2016. [27][28] The Vice President of the United States[1] (sometimes referred to as VPOTUS,[2] Veep, or VP) is the first person in the presidential line of succession, becoming the new President of the United States upon the death, resignation, or removal of the president. ...
