High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Historically control of Ohio has oscillated between the two major parties. Democrats and Republicans are pretty evenly matched in Ohio government. The governor, Ted Strickland, is a Democrat, as are all other non-judicial statewide elected officials save for one: Lieutenant Governor of Ohio Lee Fisher (D), Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray (D), Ohio State Auditor Mary Taylor (R), Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner (D), and Ohio State Treasurer Kevin Boyce (D).In the Ohio State Senate the Republicans have firm control (21-12), while in the Ohio House of Representatives the Democrats control the delegation (53-46). The Ohio Congressional Delegation is relatively pared as well. 10 representatives are Democrats, 8 are Republicans. One U.S. senator, George Voinovich, is a Republican, while the other, Sherrod Brown, is a Democrat. All the mayors of the ten largest cities in the state (Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Akron, Dayton, Youngstown, Canton, Parma, Lorain) are Democrats.

“Someplace Like America is unrelenting prose, not poetry, but what the book lacks in intimacy it makes up for in breadth and persistence. There's something doggedly heroic in this commitment to one of journalism's least glamorous, least remunerative subjects.” –George Packer, The New Yorker “These boys saw the floorboards giving out while the rest of America danced in the pig and whistle. Maharidge and Williamson have a document here that may be even more important in a generation than it is today.”—Charlie LeDuff, author of Work and Other Sins: Life in New York City and Thereabouts “Through the voices and stories of working-class people, Maharidge and Williamson provide insight into the current situation, reminding us of the history of economic struggle and the importance of understanding our culture from the bottom up.” —John Russo, co-author of Steeltown U.S.A.: Work and Memory in Youngstown “This is a deeply felt and beautifully crafted book. Maharidge and Williamson are brave and clear-eyed in chronicling the struggle of America’s workers.” —Todd DePastino, author of Citizen Hobo: How a Century of Homelessness Shaped America 'In this moving and urgent book, Maharidge and Williamson continue to dig through the social wreckage of three decades of economic plunder, courageously documenting the uprooted and displaced, the uncertain and the fearful. Someplace Like America peers into the dark heart of a society that has turned its back on working people--and that may be on the cusp of abandoning its dignity as well. In the smoldering occupational ruins of what once was, Maharidge also manages to find hopeful embers of what might one day be. A disturbing retrospective on twenty-five years of reporting on the long-term dissolution of the American dream.' —Jefferson Cowie, Cornell University, author of Stayin' Alive: The 1970s and the Last Days of the Working Class
