A Battleground District in a Battleground State

Welcome to the 2012 election cycle in Northwest Ohio's 5th district, a historically Republican area in a battleground state. Enter re-districting (100,000 Ds and 99,000 Rs), Issue 2 (union-busting), and a feisty twice-elected-to-public office Lutheran pastor (Angela Zimmann) - you can meet me here. We grabbed the hearts of Ohioans and the attention of Democracy for America. and now we've moved into fourth place. If you click on this link, you can help me move into the top three by Tuesday the 28th!

Interested yet? We'd love to hear from you! This district has never elected a woman candidate to Congress. It's 2012. It's about time.
