The three Republican candidates for governor have agreed to address the Lucas County GOP Lincoln Day dinner next month, an early joint appearance in what is promising to be one of the toughest primary races Ohio has seen in decades.

The dinner is set for April 13, said Sally Perz, interim party chairman. The appearance of Attorney General James Petro, Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, and state Auditor Betty Montgomery, won't be a debate, she said.

"I'm asking each of them to speak on a very tightly controlled program on one aspect of Lincoln that inspires them in their work," Ms. Perz said.

The event came together over the weekend, she said, and the search will begin today to find a location. Cost will be announced later as well, she said.
