With the constitutionality of the latest congressional map before the Ohio Supreme Court, candidates filed for the new congressional districts, including most of the current incumbents. Friday, March 4 was the filing deadline for those seeking one of the 15 seats in Ohio's delegation, having been delayed previously by SB258 (McColley).
The only incumbent not to file for re-election was U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Niles), who has already filed to run for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate.
The Redistricting Commission revised a map for these candidates earlier in March, but the Supreme Court has yet to take action.
