Phil Davison, Local GOP Candidate in Ohio, Gives Screeching Stump Speech

To say that Phil Davison is passionate about the state of the treasurer's office in Stark County, Ohio might be the understatement of the year.

The Republican -- "I have been a Republican in times good, and I have been a Republican in times bad!" he declares -- was seeking his party's nomination to be county treasurer and made a somewhat crazed plea for his party's approval this week.

Davison, a Minvera, Ohio councilman, lost the nomination to North Canton Finance Director Alex Zumbar, according to the Huffington Post. But he almost certainly left a lasting impression with his fellow Stark County Republicans.
