WVXU political reporter Howard Wilkinson talked with Maryanne Zeleznik this morning about the recently concluded National Urban League Conference in Cincinnati; and the two headline speakers - Vice President Joe Biden and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.
There’s one thing you can say for certain about the small-government, libertarian-leaning junior senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, who (presumably) would like to be the next president of the United States.
He doesn’t shy away from a tough crowd.
Paul did it last year when he made a speech before a somewhat less than receptive crowd at Howard University, the historically black college in Washington, D.C.
Ed FitzGerald, the Democratic candidate for Ohio governor, has been campaigning for a year and a half in his quest to oust Republican governor John Kasich, but this past week marked a first for the FitzGerald campaign.
For the first time, Ohio voters began seeing Fitzgerald, the Cuyahoga County Executive, in a 30-second campaign TV ad.
