Rep. Schmidt’s campaign is a twin-sister act

The Hill, October 25

Rep. Jean Schmidt, the Republican freshman campaigning to keep her Ohio seat, has enlisted a familiar-looking campaign volunteer: her twin,Cincinnati real estate agent Jennifer Black.

Black has made appearances at festivals and other events on behalf of her politico sibling double.

“She’s an incredible phone banker,” a Schmidt campaign spokesman said of Jennifer. “She gets people out of the woodwork.”

He also denied that helpful Jennifer poses as her twin, a virtual cloning that campaign staffers everywhere have dreamed of (and something that has been whispered about in Ohio circles).

“But that would make my life so much easier,” her spokesman cracked. “With a district that spans seven counties, it would be great to have two Jeans.”
