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.

Portune says he will decide to run or not by the end of the year.

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.
