The Demo­crat­ic Con­gres­sion­al Cam­paign Com­mit­tee is “act­ively try­ing to drum up in­terest among po­ten­tial can­did­ates” to chal­lenge Rep. Steve Chabot (R). At the top of the list: Hamilton County Com­mis­sion­er Todd Por­tune (D), Cin­cin­nati Coun­cil­man P.G. Sit­ten­feld (D), who ran against former Gov. Ted Strick­land (D) in the 2016 Sen­ate primary, and state Rep. Alicia Reece (D).

“The DCCC sees” Reece “as a well-known name who might be able to fire up Afric­an-Amer­ic­an voters in the dis­trict in a way that oth­er can­did­ates could not.”

“Trump won the dis­trict last fall by about sev­en per­cent­age points — the smal­lest mar­gin of any of the Re­pub­lic­an-held seats in Ohio. Re­pub­lic­ans hold 12 of Ohio’s 16 House seats.” (WVXU)
