The Dispatch is reporting that the Republicans finally have a candidate in the 15th: State Sen. Steve Stivers.
State Sen. Steve Stivers of Upper Arlington today will announce his candidacy for the 15th Congressional District seat, likely setting up a showdown with Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy in what could be the nation’s premier congressional race in 2008.
“I’ve decided to run for Congress because I think we really need change in Washington,” Stivers told The Dispatch yesterday. “There is way too much bickering and not enough working together to get things done.”
Stivers is scheduled to hold a news conference today at 2:30 p.m. at Ohio Republican Party headquarters.
I took a look at the Projet Vote Smart website but they have nothing about the guy except his basic resume/CV.
Under issues: here’s what they say:
