“I really like Ed’s energy. I think his energy will be infectious all across the state of Ohio. People once they get to touch him, once they get to know him will love Ed. And that will lead to a change in the governor’s office in the state of Ohio. And so, I look forward to saying, next November, hello Gov. Ed FitzGerald.”

Kearney will serve out his term as state senator but quit as minority leader at the end of December.
