Democrat To Make Announcement On Gubernatorial Run Monday


UPDATED: Sunday December 29, 2013 8:41 AM

A southwest Ohio Democrat is set to announce whether he'll make a run for Ohio governor.
    
Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune says he will reveal his decision Monday afternoon.
    
Portune could set up a Democratic primary against Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald if he decides to run.
    
A primary would be an expensive proposition as Democrats aim to take back the governor's office from Republican John Kasich.
    
Portune has spent the last two decades as either a Cincinnati city councilman or Hamilton County commissioner.
