I posted earlier Warrensville Hts Mayor Marcia Fudge, a sorority sister of Tubbs Jones, was the first and now former State Senator C.J. Prentiss has thrown her hat in the ring.
From the PD --
Former State Sen. C.J. Prentiss, now a special education adviser to Gov. Ted Strickland, wants to replace the late U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones in Congress. Prentiss, a sorority sister of Tubbs Jones, is also considering running for the rest of her current term, which runs through December.
"I don't think this is a situation where two to three people huddle in a room," Prentiss said at the annual 11th Congressional District Labor Day parade and festival. "The community speaks. That's the way Stephanie would have wanted it."
At least seven Democrats are interested in taking Tubbs Jones' seat.
I wonder who the others could be?
I would say if Prentiss runs & wins the remainder of Tubbs Jones seat, she would be the hands down favorite to get the general election endorsement. For that matter who ever runs & wins to serve the remainder of the term would be the hands down favorite for the endorsement.
This will continue to be interesting as the dems start drawing lines for favorites.
