OH-5: Two New GOP Candidates Declare

There have been four or five potential Republican candidates under discussion in the comment thread to this post, but meanwhile the Toledo Blade has reported that on two new announced candidates, neither of them a familiar name. Michael J. Reynolds (R-Columbus Grove) is a retiree who misspelled the deceased Congressman's name as "Gilmore" in his campaign announcement, and Mike Smitly (R-Van Wert) is a business consultant who is actually a Libertarian.

Add teacher Mark Hollenbaugh, 42, to the list of candidates in the GOP primary. Hollenbaugh lives in Bob Latta's home town of Bowling Green and teaches in North Baltimore. This makes 5 candidates so far, with filing deadline on September 28.
