Springer won’t run for governor of Ohio in 2018, he proclaimed on his podcast. “It’s not something as a husband and a father and a grandfather that I can do at this point,” He told the Jene Galvin, his friend and podcast co-host. Springer said that he came to the decision after Thanksgiving dinner with his family.
“They love me, so they say you’ve got to do what you want to do,” he said. “Well, no. I’ve got to do what I know deep in their hearts they want and what could make their life better.”

Ted Strickland and Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke were pushing him to run.

Jerry Springer Quotes
- We are all born as empty vessels which can be shaped by moral values.
- With a face like mine, I do better in print.
- I’m liberal, but I watch the three majors. Obviously, I watch MSNBC, also CNN and Fox, which is what I would call ridiculously to the right.
- There’s something about the openness of the American people. Yes, we have our faults, but deep down, there’s goodness. America doesn’t want to take over the world; in many ways, we don’t want to be bothered by the rest of the world.
- I’m a happy guy, but if I’m in a rare dark mood, I won’t go out because I don’t want to be horrible to people.
- My guess is more reporters probably vote Democrat than Republican – just because I think reporters are smart.
I’m always playing a role, whether it’s the role of the mayor, the role of a news anchor, or a role of a crazy talk-show host. But there was a specific function. ‘On Dancing With The Stars’, I had nothing to do but be me, schlepping
- around the floor. And when I host ‘America’s Got Talent’, that’s really me just talking to regular folks.
