Ohio races get attention from Roll Call...

Most times eyes don't turn to the Ohio political scene until primary or election time when many have stated "As Ohio Goes so goes the Nation" so it was with some interest that I saw that some of our congressional races are getting attention. Part of the article, subscription required for full access:

For Ohio Republicans, Friday might be known as the day they finally could exhale. That’s when the filing deadline passed in the presidential battleground state, following a year marked by Congressional retirements and a brutally expensive special election.

Republicans now are looking at competitive — and potentially divisive — primaries in all of the seats that came because of the retirement of GOP Reps. David Hobson, Deborah Pryce and Ralph Regula.

“We were very fortunate to have one of the most senior delegations. ... We’ve been able to have a very powerful delegation,” said Ohio Republican Party Deputy Chairman Kevin DeWine. “Unfortunately, three of them have decided to retire at the same time.”
