Strickland to Make Endorsement
(2008-06-10)
(WOUB) - Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland is expected to
endorse state Treasurer Richard Cordray for attorney general on Wednesday, clearing the way for the fresh-faced Democrat to lead the party's attempt to retain the scandal-marred office in
November.

Strickland's intent to back Cordray was confirmed by The Associated Press with several party officials Tuesday.

It was first reported by The Columbus Dispatch, which cited a high-ranking
Democratic official.

The AP's sources spoke on condition of anonymity to defer to the governor to make the announcement.

Former Attorney General Marc Dann resigned in May amid a sexual harassment scandal in the office and his admission that he had an extramarital affair with an employee.
