DEVELOPING : Marietta State Rep. Ted's "Huge Surprise?"
Could Governor Strickland's "huge surprise" for running mate be a female State Representative from Southeast Ohio who ran in 2004 as a supporter of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)? Possibly.
According to a reliable source, State Rep. Jennifer Garrison of Marietta may be under serious consideration for the post being vacated by Lee Fisher, who is seeking a seat in the U.S. Senate.
Garrison, who defeated Republican Nancy Hollister (a DOMA opponent, believe it or not) in 2004, is in her third term and is the current Majority Floor Leader.
The Governor's Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. More as we know it here at OhioDaily.
