Congressman Tim Ryan bows out of the race for governor

Youngstown-area Congressman Tim Ryan, who’s long been considering a run for governor next year, now says he won’t. "It has become increasingly clear to me that I will be able to do more for the region, state, and country by continuing to serve in the House of Representatives rather than running for governor," he said in a statement.

His announcement comes the same week that Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald did what he’d been talking about for months:

“Today I’m announcing the formation of an exploratory committee to run for governor.”

A recent Quinnipiac poll showed Ryan would do better than FitzGerald against incumbent Republican John Kasich. But Kasich still beats them both; he leads Ryan by 8 points and FitzGerald by 10. Democrats gathered Friday night for their annual legacy dinner in Columbus, and both FitzGerald and Ryan spoke.
