"I don't want to add to the circus," Jerry Springer said yesterday on his podcast, informally announcing that he will not be running for Ohio governor next year.

The one-time Cincinnati mayor had hinted at a possible run — an idea that was then fueled by media and political speculation for months. This week, we can all stop wondering about Jerry's intent.



But "big names" Richard Cordray and Dennis Kucinich are still out there, though.

Cordray just stepped down amid a blaze of Washington heat from his post at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It seems more likely than ever that he will join the circus within the week.
