FitzGerald names Dayton-area attorney as his running mate in Ohio governor's race

COLUMBUS -- Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald named a Dayton-area Democrat as his choice for lieutenant governor Friday, a little more than a month after his first pick stepped aside because of tax bill issues.

Sharen Neuhardt joins the ticket with hopes of unseating Republican incumbent John Kasich. She is a licensed attorney who had two unsuccessful runs for Congress, losing to Steve Austria in 2008 and Mike Turner in 2012.
