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.
Strickland Balks At Another Run For Governor
Former Governor Ted Strickland will not make another run at the office in 2014.
“In many ways, this has been a very difficult decision. 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,” Strickland wrote in a statement released this morning.
The former governor and congressman did not give a reason for stepping out of the race.
Strickland says he and his wife Frances will remain “politically active private citizens.”
Strickland was co-chair of President Obama’s Ohio campaign last year.
Strickland’s departure from the race leaves Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan among remaining Democratic challengers to Republican Gov. John Kasich next year.
