Rep. Michael Oxley, R-Findlay, is retiring after 25-years in congress and while there are six Republicans vying for the seat, this is essentially a two-man race between Ohio Sen. Jim Jordan of Urbana (endorsed by SOB'er Conservative Culture, as well as the Buckeye Firearms Association and the Ohio Taxpayers Association) and self-funded banker Frank Guglielmi.
While I have no horse in this race, both men have interesting qualities. I like Frank. Anybody in Central Ohio who has heard his commercials could not help but like the guy. I am not a Democrat; I do not mind that he is funding his own campaign. With all of the talk about politicians on the take, how could you buy a guy who's already rich? As for Jim Jordan, his "nay" on Taft's budget and his endorsement of Blackwell sit quite well in my book.
Polls have shown Jim Jordan with a small lead and I suspect that he will win comfortably.
UPDATE: Democrat Richard Siferd, whose idea of sacrificing for the war effort is raising your taxes, is running unopposed.
