Hey, remember when Ohio-GOV was considered a pickup opportunity for Democrats?

No, really.

[Ohio] Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ed FitzGerald indicated Tuesday that he is staying in the race despite the latest revelation that he drove without a valid driver’s license for years.

The FitzGerald campaign has been rocked within the past week as news trickled out about a 2012 incident in which police caught him in a car at 4:30 a.m. with a woman who isn’t his wife and the driver’s license head-scratcher. Meanwhile, a new independent poll shows him 12 points behind Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who just raked in $2.3 million.

You know, you almost have to admire FitzGerald’s basic character: with that kind of paragraph hanging, there is absolutely nothing stopping the man from, say, kicking a puppy on national television except his own moral code. I mean, it’s not like doing so will really hurt FitzGerald’s electoral chances at this point…

PS: Seriously, it seems a shame to waste stories like these on a race that is apparently on track to re-elect John Kasich by a comfortable margin.

PPS: This is me taking the high road.

    Of course, is the because of or in spite of his Medicaid expansion betrayal? I’m inclined to the “in spite of”, not that he’ll see it that way. Say hello to the next establishment presidential nominee.

    It sounds like this Democrat isn’t going to be elected, people in the midwest tend to want to have governors that have personal integrity and don’t behave like out of control frat boys…
