In the last week of the campaign, I was interviewed by NBC News out of Maryland for a story they were doing on official write-ins. A similar story about write-ins in Ohio ran in Kent State University’s online newspaper Wired. Our campaign was featured prominently in this. During the days, I continued with a house painting project (call me “populist”). And in my free time I did some stumping in our local area, while also catching as many innings as possible of the World Series. I’m an Indians fan! Today, Election Day, I traveled across the state on Rte. 30, the Old Lincoln Highway, stumping in a number of small towns. In Steubenville, where we recently moved, I voted — then I passed out some campaign flyers at the polling location. [Trump and Clinton didn’t do that!] I then headed home where our youngest son Jonathan asked: “Could you win Dad?” I told him that “,,,yeah Jonathan, I could win.” Then he suggested we say part of a Rosary. I smiled, knowing the poll numbers, and thinking to myself: ‘Well, this is the only way I’m going to win now.’ But you know, it’s always good having that innocent hope, huh.
