There are two articles that the Cardinal Points widget at the bottom of the page here at WMD tagged for the Ohio Seante that I wanted to specifically highlight because they deal with Republicans announcing their candidacies.
State Rep. Clyde Evans has served the 87th House District and now is running to replace State Senator John Carey who is term-limited (and a candidate worthy of Kasich LG consideration). Evans is on a district-wide tour today and will be at the county courthouses in Ironton (9am - missed it!), in Waverly (11:50am), 1 p.m. in Chillicothe and Circleville at 3:45 p.m.
Former State Senator Scott Oelslager is going to be seeking his 29th district seat again. Oelslager and Kirk Schuring did the old seat swapping bit awhile back and now it is time to do it again. Aren't term limits wonderful?
UPDATE: There is another name being tossed around for the 17th...State Rep. Dave Daniels of the 86th District has also announced his candidacy. You can learn more about Dave by checking out his website.
