“Ed is one of the rising stars of the party,” Wasserman Schultz said of the Cuyahoga County executive. “He has been successful everywhere he’s been.” She also referred to last week’s poll, which showed FitzGerald slightly ahead of the governor but within the margin of error. “It shows his support has cratered,” Wasserman Schultz said of Gov. Kasich. “Understandably so.”
Of Turner, Wasserman Schultz added: “Anyone who knows Nina Turner knows this is someone deeply committed to fairness and justice.”
FitzGerald said Democrats warned voters in 2010 that Gov. Kasich would pursue an agenda unfriendly to the middle-class. He also continued his attacks on Kasich’s support of abortion restrictions.
Turner, meanwhile, quipped that Ohio has “a John problem” — a reference to Gov. Kasich, Secretary of State Jon Husted, and U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, a Cincinnati-area Republican. “We’ve got to do something about those GOP Johns,” Turner said.
