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.

So, Strickland is responsible for massive job loss during a huge recession brought on by Bush and the republicans handiwork. Love this type of logic that caused all these problems.

@ 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.

No you slimy rescumlicans act like it was nirvana during his time in office. You whine like little b$$ches about deficit spending but ignore the fact that two wars are expensive. A crashed stock market, massive unemployment none of this happen under Bush. You rescumlicans make Clinton look like The Lord of truth. Scumbag
