OH Sen-26: Gillmor (R) A Possible Candidate?
This item is speculative, but Karen L. Gillmor, Ph.D. (R-Dublin), who is Vice Chairman of the State Employment Relations Board and the widow of the late Rep. Paul Gillmor (R), has $26,112.46 in her campaign treasury according to records on file with the Ohio Secretary of State. For what purpose?
Gillmor was an Ohio Senator previously and the 26th Ohio Senate District, where she now lives, is an open seat because incumbent State Sen. Larry Mumper (R-Marion) is term-limited.
ADDENDUM: I should have mentioned, the 26th District is in Union, Logan, Marion, Wyandot, Crawford, Seneca, Sandusky and Ottawa Counties, stretching from north-central to northern and northwestern Ohio. It leans strongly Republican (PVI R+8). The district includes the 81st, 82nd, and 83rd Ohio House Districts, all held by Republicans. Incumbent Larry Mumper was unopposed in 2004.
