CLEVELAND - Former Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland says he's not ruling out a bid to return that job.
He lost to Republican Gov. John Kasich last year. The 70-year-old Strickland acknowledged on Tuesday that he's considering another run for governor.
He was in Cleveland to appear at a luncheon for the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, a liberal organization. During his speech, the 70-year-old Strickland criticized Kasich and other Republicans for supporting a new law that limits collective bargaining for public workers. He also criticized an overhaul of state election laws.
Both issues may be put before voters.
A spokesman for Kasich dismissed the criticism and compared policy advice from Strickland to "sailing lessons from the captain of the Titanic."
