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)
