1990 Ohio gubernatorial election

General
Governor before election Dick Celeste DemocraticElected Governor George Voinovich Republican

Four candidates from each party have already been declared for the 2018 Governor's race. What on earth are they thinking? The governor is the highest-paid state employee in Ohio. Last year, 186 State workersincluding, lieutenant Governor, several members of the cabinet and even the deputy treasurermade more money than the Governor. The salary, at about 148 000, is certainly a livable one. But when the State economy is in toilet, people look to the Governor. Nobody blames the deputy treasurer. Ohio's most exciting Gubernatorial contest was probably in 1848, when Seabury Ford defeated John Weller by one-tenth of percent, margin of about 300 votes. These days, most Ohio Governor's races are lopsided and forgettable. They are neither as ugly, nor as entertaining, as contests for the US Senate. That may be because they don't generate as much passion. Folks just don't get that work up about the Governor. After all, it has largely been a dead-end job for the past 120 years. Ever since Rutherford B. Hayes and William McKinley were elected President in a two-decade span late in the 19th century, Americans have not seen fit to send a third Ohio Governor to the White House. Even the vice presidency and President's cabinet have been off-limits for Ohio governors during that time. Gov. Jim Cox won the Democratic Nomination for President in 1920, but he was badly beaten by fellow Ohioan Warren G. Harding, senator. Sure, they put up a statue of Jim Rhodes, but his successors haven't gotten the same level of respect. Fans of Dick Celeste and George Voinovich will tell you they were successful governors, but can anyone remember what they did Voinovich's political legacy was forged in his prior job as Mayor of CLEVELAND. For those old enough to remember the Celeste administration, his name conjures memories of crude Republican bumper sticker slogan recited by schoolchildren throughout the 1980s. It hasn't gotten any easier to make one's mark as Governor. As is the case on national level, politics at Ohio Statehouse is more polarized than it was just a decade ago. Former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland has fond memories of his early meetings with Republican legislative leaders after he became Governor in 2007. Strickland would sit down with Jon Husted, who was speaker of the House, and Bill Harris, then-President of the Senate, to discuss their respective priorities and find ways to compromise. I don't know if those kinds of interactions are possible today in Columbus, Strickland say. I think polarization has resulted in an inability for those kinds of interactions to take place. Husted, now Ohio's secretary of State, said such exchanges might be possible, but agreed they are not likely. I think it's tougher today than when I got into public office, he say. I think that things have become more institutionally partisan, where not only politicians, but interest groups and voters have pick teams. And you've get to always oppose other team to be loyal to your team. And that's just the politics of things.

Republican primary

1989 Press Photo Mayor George V. Voinnovich in the Red Room with his wife Janet. In this April 1989 file Photo, then-CLEVELAND Mayor George Voinovich, with wife Janet at his side, discusses his intention to run for Governor during a City Hall news conference. At one point, it appeared Voinovich could face a crowded Republican primary. But he ultimately had clear field. CLEVELAND, Ohio-last time Ohio Republicans had at least four strong candidates for Governor, party leaders worked through logjam and entered an era of dominance. State Sen. Paul Pfeifer, who had finished last in the GOP primary four years before, decided to instead run for Attorney General. US Rep. Mike DeWine bailed on his bid and agreed to be CLEVELAND Mayor George Voinovich's running mate for lieutenant Governor. Hamilton County Commissioner Bob Taft was toughest to budge. Tafts are Republican royalty in Ohio. But many believe Voinovich, with his fundraising skills and bipartisan appeal in the Big City, would lead the GOP comeback after years in Ohio's political wilderness. It took direct appeal from the Republican National Committee chairman and a promise to help bankroll Taft's consolation prize-run for secretary of State-to pry him out of the race. The Voinovich-DeWine ticket emerged from a clear primary field and rolled through the general election. DeWine move up to the Senate in 1995. Voinovich later joined him after winning two terms as Governor. Taft won the first of two terms as secretary of State and, eight years later, first of his own two terms as Governor. Only Pfeifer came up short in the 1990 juggling act. But in 1992, he won the Ohio Supreme Court seat that he held on to until retiring last year. US Rep. Jim Renacci and Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor already declared their candidacies. Secretary of State Jon Husted is likely to do so soon. Then there's DeWine, who now serves as Ohio Attorney General and figures to be the GOP frontrunner. For Republicans to extend their current era of dominance in Columbus, 2018 will have to look more like 1990. But it's highly possible they will get something more like 2006. That cycle began with three Republican State officeholders-Ken Blackwell, Betty Montgomery and Jim Petro-wanting to succeed term-limited Taft. Blackwell beat Petro in a primary that moved the party further to the right in the midterm election that became a referendum on President George W. Bush nationally and, in the wake of the scandal involving Taft, on Republicans at State level. Montgomery ran for Attorney General instead. It was bust. Democrats won all but one office on statewide ballot. They even knocked DeWine out of his Senate seat. The Lone GOP victor, Taylor, slipped in as State Auditor. Here's one reason why 2018 could be more like 2006 than 1990: None of the Big Four has signalled willingness to settle for anything less than Governor. That's understandable at this early stage.

State budget

COLUMBUS, Ohio in his grand Statehouse office beneath the bust of Lincoln, Gov. John R. Kasich let loose on fellow Republicans in Washington. I am concerned about the fact there seems to be war on the poor, he say, sitting at the head of a burnished table as members of his cabinet linger after meeting. That if youre poor, somehow youre shiftless and lazy. You know what? He say. Many people who complain ought to ask their grandparents if they work at WPA. Ever since Republicans in Congress shut down the federal government in attempt to remove funding for President Obamas health Care law, Republican Governors have been trying to distance themselves from Washington. Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin school lawmakers in Washington Post opinion column midway through the 16-Day shutdown on What Wisconsin Can Teach Washington. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, with a record of bipartisan support at home, remarked after a visit to the nation's capital, If I was in the Senate right now, I would kill myself. But few have gone further than Mr. Kasich in critiquing his party's views on poverty programs, and last week he circumvented his own Republican Legislature and its Tea Party wing by using a little-know State Board to expand Medicaid to 275 000 poor Ohioans under President Obama's health Care law. Once leader of conservative firebrands in Congress under Newt Gingrich in the 1990s, Mr. Kasich has surprised and disarmed some former critics on the Left with his championing of Ohios disadvantage, which he frames as a matter of Christian compassion. He embodies conventional Republican fiscal priorities balancing the budget by cutting aid to local governments and education, but he defies many conservatives in believing government should ensure a strong social safety net. In his three years as Governor, he has expanded programs for the mentally ill, fought the nursing home lobby to bring down Medicaid costs and backed Clevelands Democratic mayor, Frank Jackson, in raising local taxes to improve schools. To some Ohio analysts, those moves are reaction to the humiliating defeat Mr. Kasich suffered in 2011 when voters in a statewide referendum overturned a law stripping public employees of bargaining rights. Before the vote, Mr. Kasichs approval in this quintessential swing State plunge. Now, as the Governor's image has soften, his poll numbers have improved heading into the re-election race next year against the likely Democratic nominee, Ed FitzGerald, executive of Cuyahoga County. He still angers many on the Left; he signed a budget in June that cut revenues to local governments and mandates that women seeking abortion listen to fetal heartbeat. Democrats see his centrist swing as mere calculation, prelude to a tough re-election fight. This is someone who realized he had to get to the center and chose Medicaid as an issue, said Danny Kanner, communications director of the Democratic Governors Association. That doesnt erase the first three years of his governorship when he pursued polices that rewarded the wealthy at the expense of the middle class.
