Democratic running for Ohio governor focuses on fall election in his 1st radio ad of campaign

Share/Save/Bookmark

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A Democratic candidate for Ohio governor has released his first ad of the campaign season, focusing on his Republican opponent, not his challenger in the primary.

The radio ad from Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Executive Ed FitzGerald began airing statewide Thursday. It comes in the same week Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) released his first television ad.

FitzGerald faces Larry Ealy (EE'-lee) in the May 6 primary, though his ad doesn't mention Ealy. Instead, it targets Kasich's tax policies and claims they're not working. The minute-long ad also touts FitzGerald's background.

Kasich's first ad was biographical, emphasizing his blue-collar roots in a Pennsylvania steel town.

Kasich campaign spokeswoman Connie Wehrkamp says it isn't surprising that the Democrats' first ad was an attack ad. She said it says a lot about their character.
