With Apologies to Kevin DeWine...

"Isn't it about time we had a hot CPA run for...Lieutenant Governor."

Doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?

Having had an opportunity to not think about this for a few hours, I can come back with a fresh perspective.

It's still a bad idea.

But I don't believe it was Kevin DeWine's fault.

Mary Taylor lied to all of us when she said she would be running for re-election and now the apportionment board is in peril.

If Kevin and the ORP brain trust were behind this move, they would have had a candidate ready to go. There isn't one.

So, let's take a look in to the crystal ball and see if we can conjure up a few likely suspects...

MATT DOLAN -- He could self-finance, which is a BIG plus; but he is Matt Dolan, which is a BIG minus. Plus, I still hear that he plans to resign his State Rep seat today and run for Cuyhoga County executive.

SETH MORGAN -- He is a CPA. He is a conservative. He is one of the guys I have been keeping an eye on for the future and the future may be now.
