Ohio Governor

As reported in the Columbus Dispatch here and the Cleveland Plain Dealer here, Jim Petro(R-Rocky River) has dropped County Commissioner Phil Heimlich (R-Cincinnati) as running mate. Heimlich will run for reelection to his old seat, not Lieutenant Governor. Heimlich's father was the inventor of the famous life-saving maneuver.

Petro is reportedly considering State Sen. Gary Cates (R-West Chester) and State Sen. Joy Padgett (R-Coshocton) as replacements.

This is seen as a significant stumble for Petro, who has already had to deal with losing his campaign manager Matt Cox last September and the allegation in December by an attorney that one of Petro's fund-raisers offered him lucrative legal assignemnts for the state in return for a campaign contribution.

Among the other major party candidates, only Bryan Flannery has announced a running mate, who is TV football commentator Frank Stams.

According to his son Peter, Dr. Henry Heimlich is a charlatan who appropriated credit for the maneuver from Dr. Edward A. Patrick: http://medfraud.info
