The Associated Press

        COLUMBUS - Lt. Gov. Maureen O'Connor said Thursday she's taking a leave of absence from her job as director of the Ohio Department of Public Safety until after the November elections.

        Ms. O'Connor, a Republican, said she won't return until her campaign for a seat on the Ohio Supreme Court ends.

        Ms. O'Connor faces Hamilton County Municipal Judge Tim Black on Nov. 5.

        The Public Safety Department said Thomas Stickrath, the No. 2 administrator in the state prison system, will be acting director in Ms. O'Connor's absence.
