Ohio's Gubernatorial Candidates Spar Over Lehman Brothers

For months now, Governor Ted Strickland has been hammering his Republican opponent, John Kasich, for his ties to Wall Street. Kasich was a former managing director for Lehman Brothers, the company widely blamed for starting the national financial meltdown in the fall of 2008. But the Ohio Republican Party is fighting back, saying Strickland himself has ties to Lehman Brothers. Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles reports.
