Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Former Congressman John Kasich has filed paperwork to begin raising money for a run for Ohio Governor in 2010.

Kasich, a republican who served in congress for 18 years, named his campaign treasurer in paperwork filed Friday with Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.

Kasich says a formal announcement of his campaign would be forthcoming.

Political observers have long expected Kasich to jump in the race against Gov. Ted Strickland, a democrat who has not formally announced his intentions to run for a second term.

Kasich has also been an on-air personality for Fox News.

He served six years as managing director of Lehman Brothers' Investment banking division until the bank declared bankruptcy last fall.
