Former state rep. Charlie Earl is Ohio's Libertarian candidate for governor

Charlie Earl, Ohio's libertarian candidate for governor, saddles up for his 'last rodeo' | - Henry J. Gomez, Northeast Ohio Media Group:

"The libertarian candidate for governor in 2014, whom conservative Tea-Party types may rally around to spite Republican incumbent John Kasich, is a retired college instructor who also has worked in TV and radio.... [Charlie] Earl also is a former Republican state representative. He served from 1981 through 1984.

"'I look around,' Earl said this week in a telephone interview.... 'The governor served with me. The attorney general [Mike DeWine] served with me. Our U.S. senator, Sherrod Brown, served with me. The current speaker of the [Ohio] House of Representatives, Bill Batchelder, served with me.

"'And I'm thinking,' Earl deadpanned, 'in 30 years, things haven't gotten better.'
