Rios is running for election to the office of Governor of Ohio as a write-in candidate. Bob Fitrakis is running for Ohio Lieutenant Governor on the same ticket. The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

To get the Green ticket on the November ballot, Rios and Fitrakis needed to receive 500 write-in votes in the primary on May 6.[2] They appear to have succeeded, with 628 votes according to the unofficial results.[3]

The Green Party's original candidates, Dennis Spisak and Suzanne Patzer, were disqualified by the Ohio Secretary of State after they submitted too few accepted signatures.[1]
