FitzGerald and Kearney Make Official Ohio Governor's Race Announcement
MOUNT ADAMS, Ohio (WKRC) -- A Democratic team running for Ohio Governor makes the partnership official.
Ed FitzGerald formally announced that State Senate Minority Leader and Cincinnati native, Eric Kearney will be his running mate.
The pair held a joint press conference at Crowley's Pub in Mount Adams. FitzGerald, who is from Cleveland, says he wanted geographical balance on the ticket. He said he also wanted to choose someone practical.
"I was really looking for someone who is a serious policy person. The thing about Eric is, he balances a commitment to family, he is right on the issues but he is very serious about making government work."
Kearney said, "I really like Ed's energy. I think his energy will be infectious all across the state of Ohio. People once they touch him, once they get to know him, they will love Ed."
Kearney says he is excited to join the ticket and will remain in the State Senate until the end of the year.
