CINCINNATI (AP) — Mayor John Cranley of Cincinnati says he is exploring a run for Ohio governor in 2022. The Democrat said Friday he thinks Ohio must do better. He points to Cincinnati's growth and progress in recent years. Cranley is in his second four-year term as mayor and is term-limited against running in 2021. The 45-year-old former city councilman twice lost bids to unseat veteran Republican congressman Steve Chabot. Several other Ohio Democrats are considered potential challengers to first-term Republican Gov. Mike DeWine in Ohio, which has been trending Republican in statewide elections.
