A long awaited announcement from a potential Democratic candidate for governor is happening today. Former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Chief Richard Cordray has scheduled an event to talk to reporters near Columbus.

Cordray will make an announcement at Lilly’s Kitchen Table, a diner in his hometown of Grove City just south of Columbus. The former Ohio attorney general and treasurer couldn't talk about his plans while he was heading up the CFPB, but since he's resigned, he can join the race.
