Ohio Republicans have found a candidate for attorney general, who declares that he's not a "sacrificial lamb." From the Dayton Daily News :
COLUMBUS -- Republicans finally have a candidate for attorney general, and Mike Crites is confident he can come up with the more than $2 million he says it will take for his race against Democrat Richard Cordray.
"As an athlete, as a naval officer and a prosecutor, I have never, ever entered into any contest that I did not fully expect to win," Crites, 60, said on Wednesday, July 23. "I would not be here today ... if I thought I was the sacrificial lamb of the Republican Party. ... I'm in this race to win on Nov. 4."
Even before Crites, a former U.S. attorney for the southern district of Ohio, introduced himself at a Statehouse press conference, however, Ohio Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern was belittling him as a "third-tier candidate."
Crites is right that he shouldn't be ruled out, but he does start out as an underdog.
