Lt. Governor Mary Taylor announced she formally filed committee, "Mary Taylor for Governor." In other words, Mary Taylor is running for governor.

“First, we are blessed to live in an amazing country where conservative reform is coming, and I’m ready to lead this fight in Ohio," said Lt. Governor Taylor in a statement. "I care deeply about our state, our people, and the future we can build by working together. We turned Ohio in a new direction and we’ve seen what’s possible in our communities when we rein in government, put people first, and ensure everyone has a fair shot at the American Dream. My priorities are jobs, strengthening families, fixing education and cutting red tape so government is accountable. I want the job of serving Ohioans as our next Governor and this is an important step forward.”

According to the committee, Taylor will make a formal announcement later this year. The Republican primary is more than a year away, the General Election will take place on Nov. 6. 2018.
