Kearney leaves FitzGerald for Ohio governor ticket
Eric Kearney is out, as expected Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald today sought to heal self-inflicted wounds. The running mate he was counting on to criticize Gov. John Kasich’s tax policies turned out himself to owe about $826,000 in back taxes and penalties. The campaign had tried to salvage its lieutenant governor candidate, but it couldn’t stop the drip-drip of bad news about state Senator Kearney’s personal and professional finances. Today, Mr. Kearney took himself off the ticket.
