DescriptionColumbus - Former Ohio Attorney General Lee Fisher announced Wednesday that he will not be a candidate for governor next year.

"After a great deal of serious thought and reflection . . . I've decided not to run for governor of Ohio in 2006," he said. "My passion for making a difference in the lives of everyday people and families contin- ues, but there are many important ways to make a dif ference in the com munity and state, and my work at the center is one of those ways."

Fisher's decision to remain in Cleveland as CEO of the Center for Families and Children leaves fellow Democrats Michael Coleman, the mayor of Columbus, and U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland as the only announced Democratic candidates for governor in 2006.
