That's right, it is time. It is November 2nd. The Ohio Senate Republican Caucus has a decision to make. A screening committee consisting of seven Ohio Senate Republicans will make a recommendation to the Caucus.
The actual appointment will probably not happen until after November 8th--the day Issue 2 goes down--Election Day.
Anyhow, we know the leading contenders are State Rep. Ron Young, Taxn' Trustee Chris Galloway, Former State Rep. Jaimie Callender, and the dark horse John Eklund.
The real question is whether State Sen. Tom Patton (former democrat and Galloway client) can whip up the votes for Tax loving Taxn' Trustee Chris Galloway. Can Patton (former democrat and Galloway client) convince the caucus not pick State Rep. Ron Young?
The question no one will answer is whether or not the caucus cares about Taxn' Trustee Chris Galloway working for both the Ohio Democratic Party and Ohio Republicans at the same time.
