Ohio official rebuffs idea of challenging Kasich

Associated Press • Dec 7, 2012 at 11:35 AM

Secretary of State Jon Husted told reporters Thursday that if he runs for anything in 2014 it would be for re-election to his current job, where he oversees business filings and elections in the battleground state.

The 45-year-old Husted has served as state senator and speaker of the Ohio House. He's widely mentioned as an eventual contender for the governorship.

His remarks came at a news conference held to certify results of the 2012 election, including Democratic President Barack Obama's victory in Ohio.

Husted said deciding his political future is less a priority this week than wrapping up the election and being with his family.
