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.
Hamilton County Commissioner May Challenge FitzGerald
The unofficial Democratic candidate for governor Ed FitzGerald may face a primary challenge. The Northeast Media Group says long time Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune says he’s considering a run against FitzGerald.
FitzGerald’s campaign stumbled last week when his running mate State Senator Eric Kearney stepped aside after reports of Kearney’s unpaid back taxes and penalties were widely reported.
Portune says he will decide to run or not by the end of the year.
Of a possible campaign against FitzGerald…Portune says the northeast Ohio candidate needs to be challenged to get his A-game going if he’s going to be the nominee. But, he adds, “If I file, I’m in it to win”.
Incumbent Governor John Kasich, a Republican, could so face a primary challenge. Tea Party leader Ted Stevenot filed paperwork last week to prepare a campaign.
