Husted, Tiberi Won't Seek Portman's Seat; Michael Coleman Might

Republican Ohio Lieutenant Governor Jon Husted says he will not run in 2022 to succeed Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, who said this week he is not seeking re-election.

In a statement, Husted says he intends to seek re-election to his current job, and one day run for governor. Former central Ohio Republican Congressman Pat Tiberi says he won't run for Portman's seat.

Former Democratic Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman says on Twitter he is considering a run.   

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
