Fingerhut Getting Vocal with Tax Cut Plan

St. Sen. Eric Fingerhut (D-Shaker Heights) became a vocal and bold candidate for Governor in the Ohio Primary with a bold business tax cut plan designed to spur economic growth and job recovery in the state of Ohio. The plan would only tax certain small businesses in the state of Ohio, while letting various other businesses run tax-free by the state. Another tax on bussinesses, that of equipment, Fingerhut believes should be eliminated. While Strickland remains the heavy favorite in the Democratic Primary for Ohio Governor with the full establishment behind his candidacy, dealing with shrewd and well conceived tax reform proposals is probably not something the Strickland camp felt they would be dealing with at this point. In potential match-ups for the general election this November, Strickland is now trailing Secretary of State Ken Blackwell by about 4 points in the latest Zogby Poll, 45.9% to 41.4%. Blackwell's GOP rival for Governor in the Primary, Attorney General Jim Petro, is trailing Strickland, 41.8% to 34.3%.
