BUTLER COUNTY [OH] — Anyone with aspirations to be a countywide officeholder has until Wednesday to be on the partisan primary ballots on May 6...
...The most petition[s] filed have been for Ohio’s 8th Congressional District, currently held by Speaker of the House John Boehner. The district encompasses all of Butler, Clark, Darke, Miami and Preble counties and the southernmost part of Mercer County.
Boehner is guaranteed to have one primary opponent in West Chester Twp. businessman Eric Gurr, who lives in Liberty Twp. There could be at least two other Republicans on this primary ballot in Liberty Twp. resident Matthew Ashworth and Troy resident J.D. Winteregg, who have filed but the elections board has yet to certify their petitions.
Greenville resident Matthew Guyette, who is certified to be on the Democratic ballot for the 8th Congressional District, looks to be facing Miami University professor Tom Poetter, who has filed his petitions but they have not yet been certified.
A while back I proposed a "nuclear option" for dealing with John Boehner, which Mark Levin was kind enough to publicize.
Before we resort to that, I'll be tracking the primary process in OH-8. We may in fact have a credible way to replace the feckless, cowardly and mumble-mouthed Speaker without resorting to nukes.
