Another two-time Buckeye Firearms Assoc. endorsee to run for Congress
The Dayton Daily News is reporting that State Sen. Jim Jordan (R-Urbana), will run next year for the 4th District congressional seat being vacated by the retirement of U.S. Rep. Mike Oxley.
From the story:

The 4th District includes Champaign, Shelby, Logan and Auglaize counties and extends east to Mansfield.
Jordan has been a member of the Ohio Senate since 2001. He was a member of the Ohio House from 1995 to 2000.
"As a member of the state legislature, I have led the fight on the issues that matter most to families, like cutting taxes and defending our traditional conservative values," Jordan said in a statement released Thursday by his campaign. "I am running for Congress with renewed energy to make a difference on these important issues."
Last August, Buckeye Firearms Association endorsee Jean Schmidt was elected to U.S. Congress in a special election. Schmidt recently made news by completing a concealed carry course offered by Buckeye Firearms Association volunteer Collin Rink.
Although we are excited about the prospect of having another strong pro-gun legislator in Congress, should he win, the firearms movement in Ohio will miss the strong leadership Jim Jordan has exhibited in the Ohio Senate.
