Actually, Emperor Kasich has been fighting an uphill reelection battle ever since election day in 2010. Kasich only beat Strickland by 2 percentage points, and even at that, Kasich didn't even garner 50% of the vote. The total was like 49% to 47% or something like that. So Kasich wasn't even hugely popular from his first day in office.
Couple that with the SB5 fiasco, calling our State Troopers names, defunding Planned Parenthood, the joke that is RobsOhio and the unaccountable millions, not to mention the way the Ohio GOP wants to strip voting accessibility (they still don't know that everyone's on to them), and it would seem that the only way Kasich could even win 50% of the popular vote this time is if he hired the Columbus Dispatch with their slanted polls to run his campaign.

I smell a major scandal brewing with JobsOhio. He privitized the Ohio Department of Development and appointed one of his cronies from Lehman Brothers to head this new "private" state agency that still receives taxpayer money. Yet when the Ohio Auditor asked to audit JobsOhio, the cave man caucus passed a bill preventing the auditor from auditing JobsOhio. What does Kasich have to hide? Why is he so afraid of a routine audit from another Republican office holder?
The Cleveland Plain Dealer has been highly critical of JobsOhio from the get go. They believe that all government agencies, even those that have been "privitized" but still receive public funding should be subject to routine public state audits. Edward Fitzgerald is well aware of this and no doubt will make JobsOhio a key part of his 2014 campaign. I wouldn't be surprised if the PD doesn't begin an investigative report next year into JobsOhio. Fitzgerald is also a former FBI agent so he knows a thing or two about how to conduct an investigation.
I would not be surprised if a major scandal involving JobsOhio doesn't become the BIG story in Ohio for 2014. If that does come to pass, it could sink the entire Republican slate and even claim John Boehner (not by defeat in the election, but by a resignation). Some counties would vote for Hitler before they would vote for any Democrat.
