PORT CLINTON, Ohio — Ottawa County Democrats will have a chance to personally evaluate the merits of television talk-show host Jerry Springer at a party fund-raiser next month.
Mr. Springer, the former mayor of Cincinnati, will join Eric Fingerhut, a former one-term congressman and a state senator since 1999 from the Cleveland area, at the May 8 event in the banquet hall of the county fairgrounds.
Mr. Springer and Mr. Fingerhut are seeking the Democratic nomination in a bid to run against Republican Sen. George Voinovich next year.
Each candidate will have about 15 minutes to speak.
