It’s official. Steve Stivers will challenge freshman Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy in a rematch of their whisker-close 2008 House race in Ohio’s Columbus-based 15th District.

The 2008 contest wasn’t finally called until more than a month after the election, when Kilroy emerged as the winner by 2,311 votes — or less than three-quarters of a percentage point of the more than 300,000 votes cast.
