Update on OH-3

Jane Mitakides, Charles Sanders and Mike Turner have already filed their petitions. Verification doesn’t come until the BOE meets January 9 or 10. It’s 50 signatures of people in the district, in the most populous county of the district, who are of the party or undeclared (I didn’t count the undeclareds). OH-3 was gerrymandered pretty badly- including an odd cut around Turner’s old house just to keep him eligible (which is odd, because you don’t have to live in the district to run in it).

I checked my signatures to the highest standard today and have over 50 guaranteed, but will collect some extra insurance between now and Monday morning when I plan to file.

There is an $85 filing fee (thank you to my contributors for making those funds available!).
