WASHINGTON TWP., Montgomery County | Stephanie Studebaker, Democratic candidate for Ohio's Third Congressional District, was booked into the Montgomery County Jail Sunday morning on a charge of domestic violence, according to jail records.
"The campaign and I have no comment," Will Evans, communications director for the Studebaker campaign, said Monday. He added that he would put out a press release addressing the matter later Monday.
Studebaker, a resident of Washington Twp., was booked in at 11:27 a.m., according to jail records. She was released on a $25,000 cash surety bond at 2:51 p.m., according to the Victim's Information Notification System and jail records.
Mike Turner is the incumbent in the district.
9:45 PM UPDATE: Her husband was also arrested.
August 15, 6 PM update: She has dropped out, per DDN. A special election will apprently be held to determine a new candidate.
At the risk of sounding corny, I'm more interested in the Studebakers working out their differences, patching things up, and functioning as a good family than I am in the outcome of the 3rd District race.
