Cleveland businessman Ken Lanci enters city's mayoral race

CLEVELAND - A Cleveland businessman says he's entering the race for the city's mayor.

Ken Lanci announced Monday that he'll run as a Democrat in this year's mayoral election, challenging two-term Democratic incumbent Frank Jackson.

Lanci is the first challenger officially in the race. He's chairman and chief executive of the Cleveland printing company Consolidated Graphics Group Inc.

He last ran as an independent in 2010 for Cuyahoga County executive and finished third among six candidates.

The top two vote-getters in the September mayoral primary will face off in the November election.
