A southwest Ohio Democrat is set to announce whether he’ll make a run for Ohio governor.
Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune says he will reveal his decision Monday afternoon.
Portune could set up a Democratic primary against Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald if he decides to run.
A primary would be an expensive proposition as Democrats aim to take back the governor’s office from Republican John Kasich.
Portune has spent the last two decades as either a Cincinnati city councilman or Hamilton County commissioner.
A crucial part of the Democratic Party, the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) was founded in 1993 and aims to raise money as a tool to support the President’s agenda and engage women in our democracy. It also aims to provide more information about local Democratic activities as well as opportunities to hear from and interact with party leaders.
The WLF is engaged in a wide array of political activities, providing its members with substantive information, discussion, and action. This includes an annual issues conference, regional events that share/present policy initiatives, opportunities to raise political awareness and cultivate new members, an opportunity to participate in conference calls with policy and political leaders, and much more.
