Portune won't seek state office

The Enquirer has the story:
Ending months of speculation, Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune has decided he won’t run for Ohio attorney general.

Now in his second four-year term as commissioner, Portune had mulled running for Ohio attorney general or possibly U.S. Senate.

“The Ohio Democratic Party was pushing, pushing, pushing me to run for attorney general,” Portune said.

Portune is the father of 9-year-old twins – a boy and a girl -- and a 5-year old special needs daughter.

“It is so important for both parents to be mindful and active in helping her development,” Portune said, just before taking his youngest to music therapy to help her develop her speech.

Respect to Todd Portune for what looks to be the right decision.
