Exploring Run for U.S. Senate 2022

If I decide to run for the U.S. Senate as one of two Senators from Ohio, in 2022, I will need 1,000 signatures of Ohio, Republican, voters to get what is termed “ballot access”.

In preparation for making this decision, and if you would support me being on the ballot, EVEN IF YOU MIGHT NOT, OR WOULDN’T, VOTE FOR ME, please provide the information below so I can get your signature should I need it.

I cannot do this without you!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

Should I run for Senate in 2022?

Rob Portman (@senrobportman) pisses me off.  I’m his constituent & I feel he’s a RINO.

I feel someone (or someones), need(s) to run against him in the Republican primary.

Who should it be?

Heck, maybe it should be me? If you were me, what would you do and how would you do it?

I’m slowly moving into retirement, easing out of my business which I started & grew to about $100M in revenue. I want to do something to move the country in the right direction, so maybe this is it.

I’m a young 60. I’ll be 63 in 2022. I’d do a 1-term-and-done, be gone at 69, and Ohio has 6-years to identify a better, brighter, more conservative replacement for me than someone like Portman.

I’ve had a successful business career, live a somewhat frugal lifestyle, don’t need money or power, and would do a good job representing Ohioans.

If you look at Portman’s bio on Wikipedia, it reads like the “Silver Spoon” cookbook. Private schools, Ivy League college, Michigan Law, marries upper-crust Cincinnati-society gal, vacations in the Himalayas. Works in law for 5-years and becomes career politician.

Portman worked in the private sector for 5-years, the rest in government. Yet, his net worth, according to Wiki, is over $8M. How does that square? Inheritance? Probably, and thus he’s created few, if any, jobs in his life. Reminds me of someone else … Bernie (@SenSanders)!

I’ve no delusions of grandeur.  Portman already has a war chest for ’22.

He’s already got $3.1M in CASH for 2022, which he’s using today.

What should I do?

I’d love to have you share your thoughts with me!

Social Media Censorship Letter

I’ve had enough of Social Media Censorship, especially that of Twitter.

I wrote my Senators and Representative today. I encourage you to do the same.

It’s easy to do. You can do it online. Less than 10-minutes, tops.

I’ll provide links to get you to your Senators’ and Representative’s web sites, where you can send them a message.

I’ll also provide you a draft message that you can use as a start for your message. Use it as-is, or make it your own (change it).

Whatever you do, please do something!
