State Senator Eric Kearney of North Avondale will be Ohio Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald's running mate for lieutenant governor, a campaign source said today.
Kearney, who is 50 years old, will officially join the Democratic ticket tomorrow at an event with FitzGerald at Crowley's Pub in Mt. Adams, according to FitzGerald campaign spokesman Matt McGrath.
Cuyahoga County executive FitzGerald is taking on incumbent Republican governor John Kasich in the 2014 election. It is assumed that Kasich will run with the current lieutenant governor, Mary Taylor.
