State Executive Officials

The Ohio gubernatorial and lieutenant gubernatorial election took place on November 4, 2014. Incumbents John Kasich (R) and Mary Taylor first won election in 2010 and ran successfully for re-election in 2014.[1]

U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan had been considered a strong potential Democratic candidate for the 2014 Ohio gubernatorial election, but ultimately opted against entering the race in March of 2013. He decided that challenging incumbent Gov. John Kasich (R) was not worth forfeiting his seat in the U.S. House, particularly in light of his reappointment to the influential Appropriations Committee in the 113th Congress.[2] [3][4] Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, with running mate Sharen Neuhardt, won the Democratic primary on May 6, 2014.

Kasich and Taylor defeated the Democratic ticket of Fitzgerald and Neuhardt as well as Green Party candidates Anita Rios and Bob Fitrakis to win the general election.[5][6]
