OH House 78th: Umstead (R) Seeks Nomination

A new campaign filing at the Secretary of State website indicates that Jon Umstead (R-Urbana) will seek the 78th District Ohio House seat being vacated by Derrick Seaver (R-Minster). Seaver initially won this seat as a very young Democrat, later switching parties. He is one of the co-sponsors of the odious H.B. 515, a bill to bar adoptions or foster parenting by gay couples. Democrats in the race are Thomas Matthew (D-Wapakoneta), Adam Ward (D-Urbana), and Jason Dorsey (D-Sidney). The 78th District includes Shelby County and part of Auglaize County.
