Ney Quits!

Rep. Bob Ney dropped out of the OH-18 race against Zack Space today. Will the DCCC remove their money from that district? Of will Joy Padgett/Jimmy Stewart enter the race before the deadline?


Update: From the Enquirer Blog:

Ohio state Sen. Joy Padgett, R-Coshocton, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that she had been asked by House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-West Chester, to run.

It wasn’t immediately clear why state Sen. Jay Hottinger, R-Newark, another lawmaker who had said he would potentially be interested in succeeding Ney, hadn’t been asked to run. Boehner’s office didn’t immediately respond to questions.
