He talks like a backwoods hillbilly, but I suppose that cleverly appeals to the majority of his constituents in small mining towns along the Ohio River. That's how the Ohio GOP gerrymandered a safe district that included very blue Youngstown. In 2000 during Operation Red State they added a narrow tail to that district that followed the river almost to Cincinnati. Bill Johnson spoke their language.

How that qualifies him to lead YSU leaves me without words. Well, except for the hundreds I posted above.
