Contenders for Ohio Legislature in May primaries include spouses, daughters of representatives

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 12:29 PM EDT

Primary candidates vying to be in the Ohio Legislature include former and current legislators, and spouses and daughters of state representatives.

Democrats have 13 primary races on May 6 ballots for seats in the House, while majority Republicans have almost twice as many.

State Rep. Peter Beck, who faces felony charges, is among 15 GOP incumbent representatives defending their seats. He is accused of misleading investors about a company's financial status and has denied the allegations.

One incumbent's wife is running as a write-in candidate for his seat after a paperwork error forced him off the ballot. State Rep. Rex Damschroder of Fremont says his wife, Rhonda, will act as a placeholder for him.

Several incumbent Republican senators also have drawn primary challengers amid frustration over a stalled, anti-abortion proposal.
