Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) penned a fundraising email for former CFPB director Richard Cordray (D) on Wednesday.

Warren: “I’m going to miss Rich in Washington, but I couldn’t be happier for him or the people of Ohio. Time and again, Rich has fought for working families everywhere, and now is our chance to fight for him. … Will you stand with Rich and be one of the first supporters of his campaign to take back Ohio for working families?” (release)

Former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett: “At the CFPB he gave us the strongest consumer protections in history. Now, he’ll be a fearless voice for ALL Ohioans.” (Twitter)

Former Cincinnati Mayor Jerry Springer (D), a once-possible candidate for governor: “It’s hard to imagine anyone with a more impressive set of skills & experiences, along with a successful record of fighting for working people, than @RichCordray. He brightens the prospects for all Ohioans.” (Twitter)

Cincinnati Councilman and former Senate candidate P.G. Sittenfeld (D): “Proud to support a true champion for the [people] of Ohio as our next Governor.” (Twitter)

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley (D) on Thursday announced endorsements from local elected officials. (release)

REPUBLICANS. “Cincinnati City Councilwoman Amy Murray is expected to be named” Rep. Jim Renacci’s (R) “running mate. … Renacci plans to announce his lieutenant governor candidate in the coming days, barring Murray doesn’t get cold feet at last the minute.”

“Like Renacci, Murray comes from a business background and is neither a career politician nor a Columbus insider. The addition of Murray to the ticket could help underdog Renacci distinguish his outsider-vs.-insider message in the GOP primary. But Murray is a moderate who’s not known as an outspoken Trump supporter, making her a curious pick for Renacci.” (Cincinnati Enquirer)

The Franklin County Republican Party central committee voted Wednesday to endorse state Attorney General Mike DeWine (R). (Columbus Dispatch)
