McCain supports him as JTP did him
He's gotten more airtime and basically explained some of his positions. He became a GOP as not to be Democratic one and also not independent either. For the most part, he's been side-lined by the GOP but now that's he's the official runner, things are starting to line-up. Overall, he seems to be against the established set of politics here and in the Washington DC, so he's so far not been aligned too much on one issue or another than to reduce govt., reduce taxes and refrain from wars. Gee, isn't that what many want from govt. but political life dictates many things so "if" he got elected will he change? Maybe for the good or bad, but no Tea Party involvement as far as I know.
FYI- The last person to run against Rep. Kaptur seems to have gotten ensnared by his private life as a war re-actor regrettably he picked being a WWII Nazi officer and that got some negative airtime. -----Willy
