With Gov. Mike DeWine (R) earlier in the week announcing that he will schedule the special election to replace outgoing Rep. Steve Stivers (R-Columbus) for August 3rd and November 2nd, political hopefuls are beginning to announce their candidacies. Yesterday, state Rep. Jeff LeRe (R-Violet Township) and Fairfield County Commissioner Jeff Fix (R) joined state Sen. Bob Peterson (R-Fayette County) and state Rep. Brian Stewart (R-Circleville) as special election candidates. The only Democrat so far to announce is actor Daniel Kilgore.
