Richard Cordray, the former director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, is battling his nemesis for the chief executive job in the Buckeye State.

Back in 2010, Cordray was unseated as Ohio’s attorney general by Republican Mike DeWine. Within weeks of his loss, Cordray was hired to serve as the CFPB’s first enforcement director.

Now Cordray is facing off again with DeWine — who still holds the office of attorney general — in a closely fought and increasingly nasty race for Ohio governor.
