COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's former governor was tapped Wednesday to promote liberal causes in his home state and across the country as head of an influential Washington think tank's advocacy arm.

Democrat Ted Strickland begins his job as president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund on April 1.

Strickland said in an interview with The Associated Press that he has not entirely ruled out a run against U.S. Sen. Rob Portman in 2016, but he considers heading CAP Action "a dream job" and will devote all his energies to it.

Strickland said he'll be based in Washington but continue maintaining a residence in Ohio with his wife, Frances.
