Auditor: Reardon (D) Drops Out of Race

As noted earlier today on the excellent Buckeye State Blog, Mahoning County Treasurer John Reardon (D-Boardman) has announced his withdrawal from the race for State Auditor, leaving State Rep. Barbara Sykes (D-Akron), pictured, as the only Democrat and State Rep. Mary Taylor as the only Republican in that contest. Details from this report in the Youngstown Vindicator:

"Faced with challenging the Ohio Democratic Party's anointed state auditor candidate in an expensive primary, [Reardon] chose to get out of the race. State Democratic leaders have urged [him] to quit the race for about two months ... . Party officials wanted to have people with diverse backgrounds on the Democratic ticket. Sykes and Ben Espy of Columbus, who is running for an Ohio Supreme Court seat, are the only two blacks on the Democratic ticket. ... The move by Ohio Democratic leaders to get Reardon out of the race became obvious a month ago when U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland of Lisbon, the party's likely gubernatorial nominee and a friend of Reardon's, publicly withdrew his endorsement of Reardon and gave it to Sykes. ... Reardon, an auditor candidate since June 2005, said he was initially disappointed by Strickland's decision, but realized the gubernatorial candidate was following state party philosophy to have a diverse slate of candidates on the statewide ballot, and he isn't angry at him."
