OFCC-PAC endorsee enters state attorney general race
Two-time OFCC PAC endorsee and current State Senator Tim Grendell has announced his plans to enter the GOP-primary race for state attorney general. One or two others who have also expressed interest.
"I felt it was an opportunity for somebody from Northeast Ohio to step up to the plate and represent the people of Ohio in Columbus, while remembering Northeast Ohio in the process," Grendell, of Chester Township, told reporters.
Grendell, a former state representative, began his first four-year Senate term in January.
The office of Ohio Attorney General will open in 2006 election because current Ohio Attorney General Jim Petro is making a bid for governor.
Correction: When first published, this article mistakenly identified Representative Jim Trakas, also a two-time OFCC PAC-endorsee, as another candidate for state attorney general. Trakas, who is currently serving his fourth two-year term in the Ohio House, has announced his candidacy for Ohio Secretary of State. We regret the error.
