Jerry Springer Will Not Run for Ohio Governor

"I don't want to add to the circus," Jerry Springer said yesterday on his podcast, informally announcing that he will not be running for Ohio governor next year.

The one-time Cincinnati mayor had hinted at a possible run an idea that was then fueled by media and political speculation for months. This week, we can all stop wondering about Jerry's intent.

But "big names" Richard Cordray and Dennis Kucinich are still out there, though.

Cordray just stepped down amid a blaze of Washington heat from his post at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It seems more likely than ever that he will join the circus within the week.

1. No surprise in this "announcement".

It seems he has even cut his donation to the Ohio Democratic Party in half - from $40,000 to $20,000, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
Not to mention that he's 73 yrs old - a little long in the tooth.

I can't even imagine why Kucinich's name is even mentioned in the Citybeat article.
Possibly because he was a past mayor of Cleveland - maybe about the same time Springer was mayor of Cincinnati(?)- as well as a Congressman representing the Cleveland area.
