Current Gubernatorial Scoreboard
Bottom Line

The Democrats have a crowded field seeking the nomination, including Richard Cordray, who has returned to the state following a controversial term as Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The Republican picture is a bit clearer now that Congressman Jim Renacci decided to run for the US Senate. Attorney General Mike DeWine and Lt. Governor Mary Taylor are seeking the nomination.
