Strickland Considers Another Bid For Ohio Governor

CLEVELAND (AP) - Former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland says he's not ruling out a bid to return that job.

He lost to Republican Gov. John Kasich last year. The 70-year-old Strickland acknowledged to The Plain Dealer on Tuesday that he's considering another run for governor.

He was in Cleveland to appear at a luncheon for the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, a liberal organization.

During his speech, the 70-year-old Strickland criticized Kasich and other Republicans for supporting a new law that limits collective bargaining for public workers. He also criticized an overhaul of state election laws.

Both issues may be put before voters.

A spokesman for Kasich dismissed the criticism and compared policy advice from Strickland to "sailing lessons from the captain of the Titanic."
