Ohio's House Minority Leader Says Cordray, Springer Are Good Fits for Governor
NPR - 6 months
The Democratic Party is playing the waiting game to see if two high-profile contenders jump into the governor’s race. As Statehouse correspondent Andy Chow reports, one party leader says as far as a decision goes, the sooner the better. House Minority Leader Fred Strahorn of Dayton says the handful of Democrats already in the running for governor are really good candidates. He adds that former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray, who is thought to be considering a run, is also a credible choice. But what about tabloid talk show host Jerry Springer? “He’s a very smart, articulate person, very charming, knows how to tell a good story and I think he’ll fight hard for the citizens of Ohio," says Strahorn. "But again -- no rubber stamps; everybody’s got to make their case.” Strahorn hopes that Cordray and Springer decidesoon. The first Democratic gubernatorial primary debate happens next week, and Strahorn wants voters to have as much time as possible to consider their options.

Jerry Springer May Be Running for Governor
NPR - 6 months
Tabloid talk show host Jerry Springer, whose roots are in Ohio, could be entering the race for governor next year. He’s considered running statewide before, but there are signs he might be seriously considering it this time. Springer has been doing focus groups and appearing at Democratic fundraisers, including one for state Rep. Janine Boyd. “All I know for certain is he’s really strongly considering it.” Republican strategist Mark Weaver is quick to bring up Springer’s tabloid-type show. “It’s interesting that Jerry Springer is taking a break from filming episodes about jello wrestling dwarves and the women who love them.” University of Akron political scientist John Green says don’t count Springer out. “His name recognition and his finances would put him in a good spot.” Those are things the four Democrats -- former Congresswoman Betty Sutton, former state Rep. Connie Pillich, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and state Sen. Joe Schiavoni -- running for governor currently lack. Springer is

Jerry Springer Wants Donald Trump And Mike Pence On His Show
Huffington Post - over 1 year
During the second political dumpster fire  presidential debate on Sunday night, everyone’s favorite dramatic talk-show host offered his two cents. Jerry Springer, host of the eponymous “The Jerry Springer Show,” tweeted this gem about GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and vice presidential nominee Mike Pence: While I may not be able to moderate a debate, sounds like Mike Pence and Donald Trump might need to come on my show to talk things out. — Jerry Springer (@jerryspringer) October 10, 2016 He may have been reacting to the moment in the debate when Trump said he disagreed with Pence’s discussion during the vice presidential debate of what his administration would do to intervene in the war in Syria.
