Mayor Michael Coleman of Columbus confirmed what many have speculated for months when he announced he is running for governor of Ohio.
"I just don't want to hold the job of governor, I want to do the job of governor in the state of Ohio," says Coleman.
Mayor Coleman says he's running for governor because his family is behind him and the state is in crisis.
Winning the governorship is going to take an extraordinary candidate, and I'm not looking forward to the Democratic primary for this race. I hope that all of the candidates will keep an eye on the greater prize, and I also hope that high profile figures will be willing to run for the down ticket posts like Secretary of State.
