2014 did not, sadly, see Ohio's Second District send a Democrat to Congress to fight for the citizens of our district. Instead the incumbent was re-elected, and he promptly returned to Washington D.C. to once again vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act at an ongoing waste of time and millions of tax-payer dollars. Will we ever send a Democrat back to Congress? That depends upon whether or not enough Democrats in the district decide to exercise their right to vote--a right the Republicans have been striving mightily to degrade and if possible, take away from those they don't believe will vote for them.
The elections of 2016 will be here before we know it. Who will the Second District Democrats put forward to run against the incumbent? That remains to be seen. After all, there is still some time before the primaries. Will Ronny Richards run again? That, too, is an open question.
