It would be impossible to research every local race in the state of Ohio. But there are some contests which pique the interest of the Buckeye Firearms Association political action committee (BFA-PAC), some because they are between pro-Second Amendment candidates and out-and-out anti-gunners, and others because we wish to support candidates in positions that could one day lead them to the Statehouse, Governor's mansion, or Supreme Court bench.
