Capri Cafaro Says Richard Cordray “Not Particularly Well Liked”

Capri Cafaro gave Richard Cordray a swift kick to help him begin his gubernatorial general election campaign against Mike DeWine. The former Minority Leader of the Ohio Senate candidly announced in an interview that Cordray is “not particularly well liked.”

The Mahoning County Democrat was on “The Bill Press Show” to discuss the race when she rolled Cordray under the bus. She also reminded listeners that this is a rematch from the 2010 election when DeWine ousted Cordray from his role as Attorney General.

“Here’s a fun fact: Mike DeWine beat Rich Cordray when Rich Cordray was the sitting attorney general in 2010,” Cafaro said. “So, that’s a thing that makes me scratch my head, like, ‘Why are we signing up for this rematch?'”


OUCH! Cordray’s running mate, Betty Sutton, also has a reputation of not being liked. As a former constituent of hers, this is a gripe I heard often from both Democrats and Republicans. Perhaps is a match made in heaven – or hell.
