“Des­pite be­ing trounced in Ohio’s U.S. Sen­ate race this year,” former Gov. Ted Strick­land (D) “is still leav­ing the door open to an­oth­er run for polit­ic­al of­fice.”

Strick­land: “I don’t know what I might do in the fu­ture. I’m sort of like Joe Biden — I’m nev­er go­ing to say nev­er.”

“Even if he doesn’t run for of­fice again, Strick­land said he plans to help Ohio Demo­crats win the gov­ernor’s man­sion and oth­er statewide of­fices in 2018. … Asked whom he sup­ports for gov­ernor in 2018, Strick­land de­murred. ‘I have lots of fa­vor­ites,’ he said.” (Clev­e­land.com)
