Recommended article pointed out to me by a friend, the Dispatch has a piece on the Ohio Houses to Watch — LINK — One local race is listed in the “Tier 2″ category of a district in play, but where the party in control is at least a slight favorite.
46th District, Lucas County. Occupant: Rep. Barbara Sears (R). Though she won a whopping 14-point victory in 2008 in a district that split almost evenly between Obama and McCain, Sears appears to be the most vulnerable House Republican incumbent on the ballot. Democrats have pounded her with some nasty television ads, and they say their candidate, former Maumee Mayor Harry Barlos, is a quality, business-friendly Democrat. Both sides are still spending here.
