Update: OH Pol Reacts to Viral Craze Over 'Freak Out' Nomination Pitch

(AP) — An Ohio politician looking for a promotion has become a YouTube sensation with his double-fisted pitch to GOP leaders.

Minerva Village Councilman Phil Davison's fiery six-minute appeal to Republican leaders in Canton and Stark County was not successful: He lost out on the nomination for county treasurer.

Davison, pacing back and forth and shouting at times, said his nomination would send a message to Democrats that "I'm coming. Both barrels. Guns loaded."

Video of his speech Wednesday was posted on YouTube, where it got more than 70,000 views, and spread on other sites.

Davison tells The Repository of Canton that interest in the speech has "spiraled out of control" and that he's been busy responding to interview requests.
