Legislator Says He’ll Answer DCCC’s Call

Posted April 17, 2007 at 10:03am

State Rep. Steve Driehaus (D) said he will fulfill the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s wish and take on Rep. Steve Chabot (R) next year.

Driehaus, a member of leadership in the state House, is term-limited.

He knows he has to look for something else to do after Election Day, and he told the Cincinnati Enquirer that running for Congress “ranks right up there.”

Democrats think Chabot, who won by just 9,000 votes last year, is vulnerable.

Chabot said it is too soon to talk about whether he will seek an eighth term next year.
