Republican Ohio Governor John Kasich said he was saddened Toledo Mayor Mike Bell was not re-elected to another four years.

Mayor Bell’s support of Senate Bill 5, which would have weakened public employee bargaining rights, was a regular theme during this year’s campaign. 

Asked whether Senate Bill 5 would be an issue in his own re-election campaign next year, Mr. Kasich said: “I would hope in the election next year that the campaign is about issues and not what we’ve been able to see in the past.”

Mr. Kasich’s Democratic opponent is Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald.

Toledo Federation of Teachers union President Kevin Dalton told reporters the Election Day losses were hits against Mr. Kasich. “Across Ohio, the 2013 elections can be summed up in five words: Overwhelming losses for Kasich’s friends,” Dalton said. “But in no corner of Ohio did the governor cast a darker shadow on a municipal race than here in Toledo.”
