Brunner vs. Bennett

Ohio News Network's local reporter on the Cuyahoga Elections Board scene, Brian MacIntyre (sp?) has been doing an excellent job of reporting.
CapitolSquare, a weekly public affairs talk show that airs across the state on the Ohio News Network, is touting a political match-up of the year: Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner vs. Cuyahoga County Board of Elections Chairman Bob Bennett.But the match-up, to air at 10 a.m., noon, and 7 p.m. on Sunday and again at 3 p.m. on Monday, will not offer much in the way of verbal sparring: Brunner and Bennett will be interviewed during separate segments.
Brunner, the state's chief elections officer, has suspended Bennett from the board for what she says is his poor oversight of elections and has promised to fire him. Bennett, the state Republican Party chairman, claims Brunner, a Democrat, is on a political witch hunt and vows to keep fighting. The two trade insults almost daily.
They are a cable station, based in Columbus, with a Cleveland base in the WEWS building.
For those with cable, and in Ohio, you can find your ONN channel here:
For those without cable, like me since I have so little time to watch, I hope that someone tapes one of the above shows.
Also, I have called ONN to check on the possibility of web-streaming at least some of the clips. I urge you to do the same. They are open to the idea. Call them at 614-280-3601.
It should be interesting.
