William Crawford of Castalia, a northern Ohio candidate, wants to give his sons an earful.
Neither of his two voting-age sons went to the polls Tuesday, and their father's race ended in a tie.
William Crawford, trying to retain his seat on the central committee of the Erie County Democratic Party, and challenger Jean Miller each received 43 votes in the primary balloting.
Officials plan to conduct a recount, but the race may have to be settled by coin flip, said David Giese, the county's Democratic Party chairman and an elections board member.
Son Jim lives across the street from Crawford's home in Castalia, about 45 miles southeast of Toledo, and son Andy is a college student who lives at home.Let's clarify: Jim could have crossed the street and gotten a ride with his father and brother to the polls. Instead, he and Andy have put their father's job in the hands of... a coin?
Both are registered Democrats.
Given the circumstances, this may have long term implications for their relationship with their father. Jim, Andy, if you are reading this, click here, here, here, here, here, here, or here, or be disowned.
