Arshinkoff Sure Can Pick’em

Or Not. In the latest tussle, A2 backs John Widowfield over Louise Heydorn for Summit County Council in the Republican primary. The only notable things about this are a) Ms. Heydorn has actually held the seat since 1993; and b) She’s the only Republican on the council. Widowfield, on the other hand, couldn’t win a race for Clerk of Courts last year. Not that I’ve anything personal against Widowfield; I’m very much in favor of lazy representatives. He just can’t be classed as a conservative up-and-comer.

One would think that Summit County was overrun with Republican officeholders, so we could afford the luxury of primary battles. This pick has “industrial strength stupid” written all over it.

But that’s why Arshinkoff has to go.

Go Team Coughlin!
