The Mystery Nominee in Ohio

The Enquirer called Smith's home on Wednesday and "was told by his mother that he wouldn't be back home until the end of the week and that she would pass on the message." The make-up of the district makes it unlikely that any Democrat would win the general election, so podiatrist Brad Wenstrup, who upset Schmidt in the GOP primary, seems to be in good shape for November. But considering the fact that the mysterious Smith won the Democratic nomination without seemingly putting forth any effort, we're not placing any bets.
