Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland endorses 2014 Dem challenger

Published: Mon, July 29, 2013 @ 3:05 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Former Democratic Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has endorsed his party’s challenger trying to face off against incumbent GOP Gov. John Kasich next year.

Strickland calls fellow Democrat Ed FitzGerald a family man with a wonderful background as a public servant.

Strickland said today that FitzGerald, a former FBI agent who prosecuted corruption, has helped restore integrity to Cuyahoga County where he is county executive.

Strickland acknowledged his own poor performance among Cuyahoga County voters in 2010 and says FitzGerald is positioned to get those votes back in the 2014 race.

Republicans quickly criticized the endorsement, reminding voters of massive job losses under Strickland, who governed at the height of the Great Recession.

@ gdog,
I always love you libs for blaming Bush policies for the recession. Yet you can't cite one policy for the recession.
It's all just a lib talking point, all air no substance.

In fact you libs always ignore the true reason for the recession, policies of Barney Frank and Chris Dodd. Lest you forget, they are both Dems.

Gdog The real reason the stock market crashed was the fault of the dumbocrats who wanted everyone to have the American dream without having the means to obtain it. Maybe when you retire you will thank the dumbocrats for taking soc Sec to the edge od bankruptcy by borrowing from the fund Johnson. then your buddy Billy Bob and Hilliary the B!%ch made sure take incomes of the seniors doesn't rise because they changed the way the rate of inflation is calculated . So quit blaming the republicans for all of your problems you Kool-Aid drinking scumbag. You can see all of this info on the Soc Sec website. If you are smart enough to search it
