Two women seek state's No. 2 spot

Yvette McGee Brown was not immediately on board when Gov. Ted Strickland's team first approached her about joining the Democratic ticket as his lieutenant governor candidate.

But Ms. Brown, the president of a Columbus nonprofit organization targeting child abuse and former juvenile court judge, finally accepted with the intention of becoming Mr. Strickland's city czar, focusing on the economic, education, and crime problems of Ohio's urban centers.


Brown wants to help cities' woes

Four years ago, when Ohioans were taking a broom to the Grand Old Party in statewide office, one Republican was left standing: State Auditor Mary Taylor.

Her success in swimming against the 2006 Democratic tide and her criticisms of the Strickland administration's budget choices made her a logical choice to be Republican challenger John Kasich's running mate.
