Ohio Election Starts Resembling a Game of Musical Chairs

According to the Gongwer News Service, a spokesperson for State Auditor Betty Montgomery confimed that she will leave the governor's race and instead run for Attorney General, a position she has held in the past. Rep. Barbara Sykes (D-Akron) is scheduled to announce this morning that she will run for State Auditor. Ms. Sykes, who said previously she wouldn’t seek re-election to the House, said she could provide increased accountability in a state with a government that faces several scandals.

There was further speculation in the blogosphere this morning that Jim Petro might be the next shoe to drop in the governor's race, but others believe the race may tighten up between Petro and Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell as they fight for Montogomery's supporters.

Should be an interesting primary season this year for Ohioans.
