A surprising poll shows Ed FitzGerald for the first time ever being ahead of John Kasich in the Governor's race.

How valid is that?

FitzGerald's also trying to raise ethics issue concerning deferred compensation Kasich got from the parent company of a business that got money from JobsOhio, his newly-created development group.

Is this a legitimate issue? What other issues might FitzGerald raise in the future?

A new study shows that Ohio is one of 35 states where some welfare recipients might be better off staying on assistance than working a minimum wage job.

What can be done to better balance the equation, so benefits are not incentives to stay jobless?

How accurate is the study?

Cleveland City Councilman Zack Reed's facing voters with his third drunk driving conviction.

How much tolerance should they have?

When does a personal addiction issue become a factor in an officeholder's performance?

Tom Beres discusses these issues with Cuyahoga County Democratic Vice Chairman Blaine Griffin and Plain Dealer Deputy Editorial Page Editor Kevin O'Brien on this edition of Between the Lines.
