From early on, in his quest to unseat Republican John Kasich, Democrat Ed FitzGerald he’s sought direct support from notables in his party all over the state. During a morning phone interview he told us why.

“With no primary, it's hard to get everyone on the same page.You have to sit down with them and convince them that you’re the best candidate. And that has gone well for us, all over the state.”

Fitzgerald now has a key endorsement that had not been all that certain.Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, who represents Ohio’s 11th House District and chairs the Congressional Black Caucus appeared with him in Cleveland to announce her support.

In the past she’s expressed concerns about FitzGerald not being effective enough in helping minorities and the poor.  Now she says all is well and that she and the Cuyahoga County executive are very much on the same page, especially on issues like voting rights. Her District includes parts of Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina and Summit counties.
