Democratic candidate sought for Ohio Senate seat

Applications are being sought from area Democrats interested in the Ohio Senate seat held by Mark Wagoner (R., Ottawa Hills).

The Democratic slot on the Nov. 4 ballot is open in District 2 because Sylvia Washburn, who won the March 4 Democratic primary, has withdrawn for personal reasons. The district encompasses Wood and Erie counties, western Lucas County, and north, western, and eastern Ottawa County.

Under state law, the Democratic chairmen of the four counties must select a candidate to replace Ms. Washburn. Mick Zickar, Wood County Democratic Party chairman, said the application deadline is Saturday.
