Former Ohio Governor Endorses P.G. Sittenfeld In U.S. Senate Primary Race

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate P.G. Sittenfeld received an endorsement that could be a boost to his campaign.  Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports he's getting a little help from former Ohio Governor Dick Celeste.  

Celeste endorsed the Cincinnati City Council member in his contest against Celeste's former fellow governor, Ted Strickland.  Celeste says he thinks Sittenfeld would take a fresh perspective to Washington.

"At a moment in our history when so many voters feel that Washington is broken and is hungry for change, I believe P.G. Sittenfeld is a breath of fresh air that gives our party its best chance of winning the United States Senate seat in November."

Celeste, a backer of Hillary Clinton in her bid for the white House, says Ted Strickland is a friend of his.  Celeste didn't say anything critical of Strickland but says it is time for new generation to seek office as Democrats.
