FILE – In this Nov. 2, 2010, file photo, Democratic Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland smiles after voting at the Jeffrey Mansion in Bexley, Ohio. Some Ohio Democrats are exhibiting buyer’s remorse as the shine rapidly fades from Strickland’s once-promising campaign against Republican U.S. Sen. Rob Portman. The 75-year-old former governor had high name recognition and strong support from labor, earning him the backing of Democratic party leaders in his primary against 31-year-old Cincinnati Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld. Months later, Portman, 60, is comfortably ahead in opinion polls, and national Democrats are pulling millions of dollars in planned pro-Strickland ad spending out of the state.

Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland speaks in Columbus, Ohio, last month. Some of the sharpest bare-knuckle skirmishes of this midterm election season have been for governor's mansions — especially in states shouldering the highest unemployment rates and largest tax increases. Mr. Strickland and Republican John Kasich have clashed over taxes and how to lead the state out of the economic crisis. Mr. Kasich, a former congressman, accuses Mr. Strickland of doing too little to lessen Ohio's tax burden. (Associated Press)
