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.
