Troy, Ohio

The wonderful political blog FiveThirtyEight.com, had a post about my hometown in it this weekend.

Now, I grew up in a very, very red county. As described in the blog post, "there were only 51,760 voters in the entire county in 2004, and a mere 17,606 were Kerry voters.” One of my brother’s classmates, Jake Schlachter gets mentioned as well.

Kind of interesting to read that the tide may be turning there . . .
