OH-01 Update: 10:35AM

From the myDD blogger in OH-01 at 10:15PM last night:

Tonight in the Ohio First we had a final rally GOTV rally at HQ with candidate John Cranley and Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory.

I saw a shirt today for John Cranley that said "Faith in People" and I think it's a pretty appropriate slogan for a campaign that has opened its arms to someone like me.

Finally, a campaign note about tomorrow. An old campaign hand told us today that the adage, "It's All in God's Hands Now" is no longer true. Advances in targeting technology have made is so that resources like phone banks and canvassers can now be quickly redirected to underperforming precincts, which can make all of the difference in a close election. Tomorrow is game day and we need everyone to show up. Anyone at home reading a blog when they could be out making calls or knocking on doors...well if we lose, I'm placing the blame solely on you.

Do more than vote on Tuesday.

From the myDD blogger in OH-01 at 8:43AM:

Update [8:43am]: Things are looking pretty good here in OH-01, turnout looks good, and energy high. We haven't had any reports of egregious 2004-style voting problems (though we have an army of lawyers ready to jump in if need be). All that we need is for y'all to Get Out The Vote.

It's 5am and I'm about to leave to to staff the election. It has been a blast to blog this election from the road for you guys. Here's a favorite quote that's gotten me through a lot in politics. Lets bring this one home.

"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."

Game Day. See you on the other side.

From the Cranley campaign at 8:49AM:

Hey, everyone. I will be checking in throughout the day to share reports from the field... We have been expecting great turnout today and so far the reports are excellent...

Hearing everything is going smoothly at the polls... better than expectations... our teams of poll workers reporting lots of voters moving through easily...

John Cranley has greeted enthusiastic voters in College Hill, Mt. Airy, and Wyoming... Very high turnout reported in Avondale and College Hilll...

We have hundreds of excited volunteers today, and have been getting new ones showing up to help turnout the vote...

Today is looking great already.
