Failed U.S. Senate Candidate Urges Supporters To Get Behind Democratic Candidate Ted Strickland

Statehouse News Bureau
Former U.S. Senate Candidate P.G. Sittenfeld

A former candidate for the U.S. Senate in the Democratic primary in March is urging his followers to vote for the winner of that election.

Cincinnati City Council member P.G. Sittenfeld has released a video, saying he’s proud of the race he ran with former Gov. Ted Strickland.

“The Governor whooped my butt at the polls.”

Now Sittenfeld is urging his supporters to vote for Strickland, saying he’s well known, well liked and well positioned to help Ohioans in the U.S. Senate. The man Strickland will face this fall, Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman, has released a video of his own. It features written anti-Strickland comments made by many of Sittenfeld’s supporters, most of which were said prior to the primary. Recent polls show Strickland and Portman are in a tight race.
