CINCINATI, Ohio — Ohio’s governor is staying mum on his Democratic challenger’s recent campaign problems.

Republican Gov. John Kasich told reporters Tuesday at a campaign stop in Cincinnati that he pays no attention to the other side.

Two top aides to Democrat Ed FitzGerald have left his campaign, forcing the Cuyahoga  County executive to readjust his strategy less than 50 days before early voting begins.

FitzGerald’s campaign manager Nick Buis and communications director Daniel McElhatton  have departed. Further staff announcements are expected by week’s end.

FitzGerald has been barraged with questions recently for lacking a permanent driver’s license for more than a decade, an issue brought to the surface by 2012 police records that showed him in parking lot at 4:30 a.m. with a woman who isn’t his wife.
