“Ohio families are struggling, and John Kasich’s policies are making it even harder....”

The 60-second radio ad from Democratic Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald starts with an attack on Republican incumbent John Kasich, and then moves into promotion of FitzGerald’s record and his concerns about recent tax cuts.

Kasich launched TV ads in the three big Ohio cities earlier this week that did not mention his competition at all.

Ohio State University political science professor Paul Beck says he is not surprised FitzGerald jumped in so quickly.

“This’ll be a pretty big spending race unless FitzGerald just doesn’t have the campaign funds to mount much of a campaign," Beck says.

The Kasich TV buy was estimated at $350,000 and the FitzGerald radio ad was reported to be around $200,000. The campaigns will not confirm the costs.
