Yes, Jerry Springer is "considering" a run for Ohio governor

“There have been who have asked him to run for governor, and he is considering it and will decide that pretty soon,” said Northern Kentucky’s Jene Galvin, who co-hosts a weekly podcast with Springer. “He’s about done figuring it out, but he had to give some serious thought to it first.”

The revelation comes after months of rumors and even denials by Springer. But the prospect was reignited last week after Springer asked some Cleveland Democrats: “Is it too late to enter the Ohio governor’s race?”
