Another anti-gun Democrat joins gubernatorial race
The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that former state representative Bryan Flannery has announced plans to run for the Democrat nomination for governor in 2006.
Flannery, who voted against HB274 (a concealed carry bill) in 2002, failed in a bid for secretary of state later that year after having been found to be in violation of election laws by the Ohio Elections Commission.
He is the third Democrat to announce a run for governor in 2006. Anti-gun Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman and pro-gun U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland, of Lisbon, have already announced their campaigns and each reported having raised more than $1 million for their campaigns during the first half of this year.
