Strickland won't run again
Former Ohio governor Ted Strickland won't run again in 2014.
by WKSU's STATEHOUSE CORRESPONDENT BILL COHEN


Reporter

In The Region:

Ever since he was defeated in his re-election bid two years ago, former Governor Ted Strickland has been mentioned as a possible candidate for governor in 2014.

But statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports Strickland has decided not run, bettering the chances for two other potential candidates from Northeast Ohio.

Former Gov. Ted Strickland announced today he will not be a candidate in 2014 for governor. Strickland, a Democrat, says he stands by his one-term record, though he plans to remain active in politics.

He was defeated in the Republican sweep of 2010 by John Kasich, a former investment banker and congressman. It was among the most expensive governor's race in Ohio history, with combined spending approaching $34 million.

Strickland's decision leaves Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Warren among the top potential Democratic challengers to Kasich next year.

FitzGerald is a former FBI agent and mayor tapped to lead Ohio's most populous county out of scandal. Ryan is a six-term congressman from Youngstown first elected in 2002.
