Democrats have a chance to win two Ohio Senate seats in Franklin County for the first time in two dozen years and could trim the Republicans' 7-2 advantage in the county's House delegation to 5-4.
Eight-term state Rep. Ray Miller is the favorite to fill an open seat, over pro-CCW Republican Lorena Lacey in the heavily Democratic 15th District.
And an upset could come in the 3rd District in the eastern portion of the county, where Debra A. Payne is challenging Republican Sen. David Goodman of Bexley. Goodman, who served in the House from 1998-2001, was appointed to the Senate in October 2001.
In the House, pro-CCW, OFCC PAC-endorsed Republican David A. Dobos, a former eight-year member of the Columbus Board of Education, faces Democrat Dan Stewart, lobbyist for a labor union.
Democrat Lori Tyack has been given a chance of defeating first-term Republican OFCC PAC-endorsed Rep. Linda Reidelbach in the 21st District, which includes Worthington and Northland.
As in many races across the country, voter turn-out is likely to be the KEY to victory for pro-CCW Ohioans. Do your part to educate & bring your friends to the polls!
