Before he went on stage at Friday night's big dinner and fundraiser put on by the Ohio Democratic Party, where former President Bill Clinton was the big draw and keynote speaker to approximately 2,500 people who showed up, the Democratic Party's endorsed candidate for governor, Ed FitzGerald stopped by the press pen to answer questions.

John Kasich, FitzGerald answers questions ranging from when he'll air his first TV ad to a response on his fundraising to date, which his campaign says is accelerating but reality shows is far short of the treasury Gov. Kasich has amassed.

Earlier in the evening, ODP Chairman Chris Redfern also answered questions on a variety of topics. What him hear on 60 Seconds Ohio.
