STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (MARTIN OLSON) AGREES TO REPORT ON BOCCIERI CAMPAIGN FOR "THE HUFFINGTON POST"
Yours truly has agreed to write weekly articles for The Huffington Post (HuffPo) on the campaign of Congressman John Boccieri (Democrat - Alliance) to be re-elected to the United States House of Representatives.
The Huffington Post is known to be a politically progressive (to the left of center) online publication.
If The Reports' submission is selected to be on the front page of the HuffPo, then the online publication will link to the Stark County Political Report. A link will make the SCPR accessible to 40 million HuffPo readers.
As readers of the SCPR know, The Report is an independent-minded look at the Stark County political and governmental landscape.
The Boccieri/Renacci (the Republican challenger) race is one of the top quests in the country in terms of Republicans trying to take control of the U.S. House. Republicans must win 59 seats to be the controlling party.
The SCPR has been published since March, 2008 and followed the Bocceri/Schuring (a Republican Ohio state senator who hails from Stark County) contest closely through November, 2008. The Report accurately predicted that Boccieri would win by about 10%.
Most recent polls show Renacci leading but within the margin of error for polling.
