News that Ohio House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger is considering a run for state Auditor has made the GOP primary for that office more interesting. If he runs, he will likely face former state Senate President Keith Faber.

Both Rosenberger and Faber have allies in the Legislature. Still, the man who succeeded Faber as Senate president, Larry Obhof, says he doesn’t think that will pose a problem for state lawmakers.
