Cong. OH-6: Carr (D) Relocates to Ohio and Joins Race

The intrepid Model500 at High and Broad has the story, as reported in the Youngstown Vindicator: former Michigan Congressman Bob Carr (D) has moved to Ohio and filed paperwork to jump into the Democratic primary in Ohio's 6th Congressional District, being vacated by Ted Strickland to run for governor. Already in the race are State Sen. Charlie Wilson (D) and teacher Diane DiCarlo Murphy (D).
UPDATE: Okay, so this is not THAT Bob Carr. This is a Bob Carr who ran unsuccessfully for Congress from Michigan in 1996 as a Republican ... and has now switched parties and will try again in Ohio. Here's a link to his entry in The Political Graveyard.
