More Candidates For Governor, But Not Downticket Races - And Experts Suggest Cuts, Changes To House Budget

We’re a year away from the 2018 primary. And this week, two more candidates made it official that they are indeed running for governor. And more may join in the next few months. But as Statehouse correspondent Jo Ingles reports, that’s not the only office on next year’s ballot, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of interest in those other critical statewide races.

The House version of the budget is now with Senators, who may have to cut as much as $400 million from it to balance it. And some of the many changes the House made to Gov. John Kasich’s original budget may be changed again. Two experts share their thoughts on what they’d like to see changed in the budget. Greg Lawson is the senior policy analyst at the conservative Buckeye Institute. Zach Schiller is the research director at the progressive Policy Matters Ohio.
