Ted Strickland Not Running for Governor in Ohio

January 8, 2013

Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland announced today he won't make a 2014 bid for his old position, a move that could unfreeze a Democratic field that had been waiting on his decision.

"In many ways, this has been a very difficult decision," Strickland said in a statement. "I look back fondly on my time as Ohio’s 68th Governor – and am proud of my Administration’s efforts to guide our state through the greatest national economic crisis since the Great Depression."

Among the potential candidates who closely watched Strickland's call is Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, who did not want to challenge the former governor in a primary. Strickland contacted FitzGerald to notify him of his decision.

"While he may not be our candidate for governor, Ohio is one of our top pick-up opportunities and we will continue to work with Governor Strickland to return the seat to Democrats," said DGA chairman Peter Shumlin in a statement.

Other potential Democrats challengers against Gov. John Kasich include Rep. Tim Ryan and CFPB Director Richard Cordray, who previously served as Attorney General of Ohio.
