Having barely won reelection in 2006 (1055 votes), Deborah Pryce is retiring. She is probably the only Republican who could still hold this seat, but we face state Sen. Steve Stivers now in the general. Kilroy has been an excellent Franklin County Commissioner, a bold progressive, and will make an excellent congresswoman. Franklin County (Columbus) has been trending Democratic for about a decade now, and this seat is among our 10 best pickup opportunities nationwide.
Disclosure: I lived in this district 1982-85 and 1989-93.
