OH Sen-31: Hood (R) Considering Bid?

According to the campaign blog of Ohio House 91st District candidate Dan Dodd (D), current 91st Distict State Rep. Ron Hood (R-Ashville) has taken out petitions to run for the Ohio Senate 31st District seat of term-limited Jay Hottinger (R-Newark). Hood will face State Rep. Tim Schaffer (R-Lancaster) in the Republican primary. Hottinger, meanwhile, is said to be considering running for the Ohio House 71st District seat of term-limited State Rep. Dave Evans (R-Newark), unless he is tapped to enter the Congressional 18th District race in the event that scandal-tainted incumbent Bob Ney (R) drops out. Dodd further indicates that there are several Republicans prepared to enter the 91st District race, including Hood's hand-picked successor, but Dodd is not willing to go public with the names at this time.

The 91st is a very closely held GOP district. Dan Dodd is "good people" (and a Client!) and will make a good second push for this district.

Keep an eye on this one.
