Flannery/Stams for Governor

A few weeks back, I received an email inviting me to a fundraising party for one Bryan Flannery, who will be running for governor of the state of Ohio. Flannery, a Lakewood resident and St. Ed's grad, was a reserve defensive lineman for Notre Dame from 1986-89.

On Wednesday, Bryan Flannery issued a press release official announcing his candidacy, and naming his running mate: Frank Stams. Stams, an All-American defensive end for the Irish, went on to play for the Cleveland Browns (among other teams). He is a resident of Akron.

Flannery is a State Senator who emphasizes the importance of education. Stams does not appear to have any previous political experience.

Now, as Dave pointed out on the message board, how much of a chance does this Notre Dame ticket have in Ohio with the upcoming Fiesta Bowl?
