Ohio faces serious issues, and the governor will have a big say in how much you are taxed, who is covered by Medicaid, how much you pay for college and whether the state should embrace gay marriage, medical marijuana and abortion rights. In the absence of a public debate, the Dayton Daily News sat down with both major party candidates, Republican John Kasich and Democrat Ed FitzGerald to get their views on the economic, political and social issues facing the state. Kasich and FitzGerald agree on some issues, such as support for capital punishment, but there is little common ground in other areas, giving Ohioans a clear choice on Nov. 4.
