Ohio Democrats Throw Book At Rep. Schmidt
Book, a lawyer, released a statement that said “the only way to bring real change to Washington is by sending new people to Washington.” He described himself as an “independent voice” in the legislature, where’s he served since 2003.
Book’s Democratic backers include Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland. Both men are from rural Scioto County in southern Ohio. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the campaign arm of House Democrats, circulated Book’s announcement to reporters.
