And the GOP Lt. Gov. is --?
Right, it could be Lt. Gov. Matt Dolan, whose name keeps popping up on the short list.
He's known here in Northeast Ohio and especially in his Geauga County hometown as state Rep. Matt Dolan, R-Russell Township.
So it could be the Kasich/Dolan team seeking the GOP intraparty nomination in the partisan May primary next year.
Then it would be Republicans vs. Democrats in the November general election of 2010.
