FitzGerald gets Strickland’s backing

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland has endorsed his party’s challenger to incumbent GOP Gov. John Kasich next year.

Strickland calls fellow Democrat Ed FitzGerald a family man with a wonderful background as a public servant.

Strickland said Monday that FitzGerald, a former FBI agent who prosecuted corruption, has helped restore integrity to Cuyahoga County where he is county executive.

Republicans quickly criticized the endorsement, reminding voters of massive job losses under Strickland, who governed at the height of the Great Recession.

“With today’s endorsement Ted Strickland says that Ed FitzGerald is the best candidate to carry on his legacy of job loss, record high unemployment, and a budget shortfall of billions of dollars,” Ohio Republican Party spokesman Chris Schrimpf said.

Strickland acknowledged his own poor performance among Cuyahoga County voters in 2010 and says FitzGerald is positioned to get those votes back in the 2014 race.
