Armond Budish is staring into your soul.
  • Armond Budish is staring into your soul.
Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald plans to take his talents ambitions to Columbus, but he's hung around his current stomping grounds long enough to proffer a ringing endorsement for Democratic candidate Armond Budish.

It's not terribly surprising or interesting, but the news further cements Budish's position at the front of the county executive fray. Both his fundraising abilities and political clout have garnered him fairly positive musings from the region's political punditry.

Budish stepped down as House minority leader last week, paving the way for his more localized efforts.

The really diverse range of candidate speculation thus far includes former County Sheriff Bob Reid (confirmed), Cleveland Metropolitan school board member Eric Wobser (still considering a run), County Council President C. Ellen Connally (considering), State Sen. Shirley Smith (considering) and a host of other determined politicians Democrats.
