After months of being touted as the “choice of the Democratic Party establishment” for Ohio’s Democrat gubernatorial primary, a new poll shows that Washington D.C. Bureaucrat Richard Cordray is still failing to catch fire with his party’s voters. The survey has Cordray tied with former Congressman Dennis Kucinich at 21 percent. Both candidates trail the leading Republican contender in the general election by solid margins.
Despite Cordray being widely acknowledged as the Democrat establishment choice, with some candidates even accusing the state Democrat Party of “rigging” the election in his favor, the party’s voters clearly aren’t sold on his candidacy. With just a little more than a month to go until Democrats choose their nominee, Cordray’s struggling campaign finds itself in a bitter primary fight against an energized challenger.
