Dem FitzGerald Readies 2014 Run For Ohio Governor
A top Democratic government official in northeastern Ohio said he’s forming an exploratory committee to consider a bid for governor in 2014.
In a video posted to YouTube, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald said Monday that he’s concerned about the direction the state is headed under Republican Gov. John Kasich.
Kasich ousted former Gov. Ted Strickland in 2010 in one of Ohio’s most expensive governor’s races. The first-term governor said he plans to run again. He’s raised more than $2.7 million over the past two years and has $2.1 million on hand.
FitzGerald, a former FBI agent and Lakewood mayor, was elected in 2010 to lead a new county executive-council government in Ohio’s most populous county to replace a scandal-plagued commissioner form.
Monday’s move allows FitzGerald to raise money without formally declaring his candidacy.
