Yesterday, Republican nominee for Ohio Attorney General Betty Montgomery was endorsed by the Sun News. This is the fourth consecutive newspaper to endorse Montgomery's candidacy.
"Montgomery has a solid record of achievements," said Sun News editors. "She is the stronger, more qualified - and frankly - the better choice in this race."
Editors went on to note Montgomery many accomplishment in office. "She was largely responsible for major improvements in the office, including modernizing the state's two crime laboratories, introducing a state-of-the-art automated fingerprint identification system, a computerized ballistics comparative database and DNA technology."
The Sun News is a chain of 25 weekly newspapers with circulation of more than 270,000. The chain serves five Ohio counties including Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, Geauga and Summit.
Montgomery was honored to receive the endorsement. "With the election just weeks away, it is encouraging to see that opinion makers from across the state trust in my ability to serve Ohioans as their next Attorney General" she said.
Montgomery has also been endorsed by the Columbus Dispatch , the Dayton Daily News and the Newark Advocate – all of the newspapers that have endorsed thus far in the Attorney General's race.
In addition to these noteworthy endorsements, Montgomery enjoys the support of the Ohio Fraternal Order of Police (FOP), the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association (CPPA), the Toledo Police Patrolman's Association (TPPA), the Ohio State Troopers, the Ohio Civil Service Employees Association (OCSEA), the Ohio Society of Certified Public Accountants and the Ohio Chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
