DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A local man who is running for Ohio governor is facing questionable signatures on his petitions.

The Montgomery County Board of Elections says petitions submitted by Larry Ealy of Trotwood were referred to the secretary of state for investigation into possible fraudulent signatures.

They say some signatures appear to be written by one person.

Candidates for governor need 1,000 valid petition signatures.

Ealy’s certification as a candidate sets up a primary with Cuyahoga County Executive Ed Fitzgerald who has campaigned for months to be the Democratic nominee. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
