Two questions which beg for answers:

1. At the Preble County Endorsement meeting earlier this month, David Smith was asked whether he has ever run for political office before, and where. His response was that he had run for the Special 2nd Congressional District Election in Ohio (2005) last summer. No mention was made of his congressional races in Utah (2002) and Tennessee (2004).

He was then asked how long he has lived in Ohio, and he responded with the fact that he works for Procter & Gamble and they move people around a lot. That answer leads the questioner to assume that Ohio is, and always has been, his "home" base, rather than the factual reply of 1 year.

QUESTION: If the Central Committee of a Republican County Party does not deserve the benefit of a straight forward response to a simple question, how can all the voters expect more if he were to be elected?

2. Based on his acknowledged political background originally posted on his website and written in letters he sent to county Republican Party Chairs:

QUESTION: If he should be the lone challenger to Mike DeWine in the May primary, and the nominee to challenge Sherrod Brown in the general election, how will be respond to the charge that he is a "carpetbagger" when both men unleash millions of dollars in TV commercials leveling the charge based on his factual history?

We have to stop beating around the bush on this issue - it is real, and DeWine and Brown will certainly use it. It is not mud-slinging nor is it "miss-information," it is documented history David Smith needs to address. Otherwise, he is setting up the false expectations of he being a sole challenger to DeWine in the primary, or a completely disastrous run on the part of Republicans trying to ensure Brown does not get into office should he, David Smith, be the Republican nominee.
