Average Joe Buckeye Blitz (cont.) At a whistle-stop event in Lancaster, Ohio (near Columbus), today, I told a reporter from NBC News that we didn’t “pander to anyone.” Then, looking straight into the camera, I winked: “However, I just wanted the people in the Columbus area to know that when I do get to D.C., the first thing I’m going to do is put a big buckeye on the top of the Capitol Building.” A reporter from a Christian radio station also interviewed me on the street today, asking how I’d characterize our platform. I said we look at each issue with a “What Would Jesus Do” mind set. Note: I interviewed Vietnam Veteran Bob Sherman here today as well. He said he contracted diabetes as a result of being exposed to “agent orange.” While he’s been medically covered since 2002 (when the govt. ok’d covering agent covering orange cases, he said), he’s spent almost $60,000 on the condition since the mid-70s. I said as president I’d fight for that money to be compensated him.
