Democrat for Ohio governor says wife works 2 jobs

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Democratic gubernatorial contender Ed FitzGerald has introduced his wife to about 1,000 party loyalists as a woman employed at two jobs.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that her husband described Shannon FitzGerald at the state party's 2014 Legacy Dinner on Saturday as working at a school during the week and at a northern Ohio hospital on Saturdays.

FitzGerald, the Cuyahoga County executive, likely faces Republican Gov. John Kasich (KAY'-sik) in November. The Democrats' endorsed candidate must first turn back a primary challenge.

FitzGerald told Democrats their party represents "the people who struggle to make it," often working multiple jobs. He criticized Kasich for his time as an investment banker at Lehmen Brothers.

A Republican party spokesman said voters should judge Kasich on results, including an added 238,000 private-sector jobs.
