TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

The Ohio Democratic Party is getting involved in the race for Toledo Mayor, even without a democrat in the running.

Mayor Mike Bell and challenger D. Michael Collins are both independent candidates, but the Ohio Democratic Party has chosen to support Collins.

The state party's executive committee passed a resolution encouraging Toledoans to support Collins on Thursday.

"Moving forward, we'll continue to discuss with local labor leaders what level of resources we should allocate to this race," the party said in a statement.
