Democrat to decide whether he’ll run for Ohio gov.

CINCINNATI – A southwest Ohio Democrat is set to announce whether he’ll make a run for Ohio governor.

Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune says he will reveal his decision Monday afternoon.

Portune could set up a Democratic primary against Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald if he decides to run.

A primary would be an expensive proposition as Democrats aim to take back the governor’s office from Republican John Kasich.

Portune has spent the last two decades as either a Cincinnati city councilman or Hamilton County commissioner.
