Fitzgerald gets Dem challenger for governor

Posted: Updated:

A little-known Democrat from the Dayton area has qualified for the May ballot, creating a gubernatorial primary in Ohio.
    
The state's top election official said Tuesday that Larry Ealy and his running mate Ken Gray got the signatures needed to appear on May 6 ballots.
    
Earlier this month, the candidates for governor submitted petitions with signatures of 1,000 registered voters that had to be verified by elections officials.
    
Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald has been campaigning for months to be the Democratic nominee for governor. Secretary of State Jon Husted said the Democrat also qualified for May's ballot.
    
The Republican primary field was clear for first-term Gov. John Kasich after a potential tea party challenge fell through earlier.
    
Third-party challenger, Libertarian Charlie Earl, also qualified.
