Name calling has already begun in the race for Ohio Governor but it’s not what you think. The Ohio Republican Party has requested documents that Democratic Gubernatorial candidate and Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald has not signed because his name was not spelled correctly. And the Ohio Democratic Party is firing back with a similar request of its own.
Ohio's elections chief has squelched rumors he might be preparing to challenge Gov. John Kasich in a Republican primary two years from now.
Secretary of State Jon Husted told reporters Thursday that if he runs for anything in 2014 it would be for re-election to his current job, where he oversees business filings and elections in the battleground state.
The 45-year-old Husted has served as state senator and speaker of the Ohio House. He's widely mentioned as an eventual contender for the governorship.
