Ohio Democrat Cordray gets Cincinnati mayor's governor nod

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ohio Democratic governor candidate Richard Cordray has picked up support from another southwest Ohio mayor.

Second-term Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley on Tuesday endorsed the former federal consumer watchdog and state attorney general in the five-way primary. Cranley had backed Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, but she dropped out this month and endorsed Cordray.

Cranley says local governments have been hurt by Republican control of Ohio's Statehouse and Cordray will work with cities.

Former state legislator Connie Pillich is getting campaign help in Columbus from Democrat and former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell.

Other Democrats in the May 8 primary are former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich, state Sen. Joe Schiavoni (shuh-VOHN'-ee) and former Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O'Neill.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine faces Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor in the GOP primary.
