Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Eric Fingerhut quits campaign for governor
Congressman Ted Strickland appears to be on his way to winning the Democratic nomination for Ohio governor.
He’s the only major Democrat left in the race now that State Senator Eric Fingerhut of Cleveland is dropping out.
Fingerhut informed supporters of his decision Monday, posting a letter on his campaign Web site. He plans to formally withdraw from the race at a news conference Tuesday.
Fingerhut says in his Web posting that he ended his campaign because he was well behind the $3-million that Strickland has raised from donors.
Attorney General Jim Petro and Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell appear to be the only Republican hopefuls who will meet Thursday’s filing deadline for the May second gubernatorial primary.
