Incumbent Joe Deters Faces Fanon Rucker In Race For Prosecutor

Oct 7, 2020

This November, Hamilton County Republicans have their sights set on one race far above all others: getting incumbent Joe Deters re-elected prosecutor. He faces a candidate he has run against for the seat once before, former Hamilton County Municipal Court Judge Fanon Rucker.

Democratic candidate Judge Fanon Rucker and incumbent Republican candidate Prosecutor Joe Deters join Cincinnati Edition to discuss the campaign for Hamilton County prosecutor.

Then, WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson joins us for perspective on the race.

Retired Judge Rucker is a trustee for the Murray & Agnes Seasongood Good Government Foundation. The Seasongood Foundation provides annual support to WVXU’s local government reporting.
