On the same day that Ohio 15th District Congressman Steve Stivers announced he was resigning to become President/CEO of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, a new member of the Ohio House of Representatives has declared his candidacy for that slot.
Newly elected 78th District Ohio House member Brian Stewart has declared his candidacy for the Republican nomination for that congressional seat.
Stewart took office as the Ohio House 78th District Representative in January following two terms as Pickaway County Commissioner.
In a press release, Stewart said; “Congressman Stivers is a good friend, and he has been a fantastic leader for our communities. I thank him for his service in Congress and I wish him well in this new chapter of his life. His leadership has made our beloved state and nation stronger and better equipped to meet challenges that are on the horizon.
Those challenges- whether from the extreme left, or an adversarial nation- must be dealt with aggressively and with conviction. Although I was not looking to run for Congress, in just the past few hours alone I have received strong encouragement from family, constituents, and community leaders to consider this next challenge. As an infantry veteran of the Iraq War, I have never shied from a challenge, and I am pleased to announce that I am running for Congress to represent Ohio’s 15th district.
As a small business owner, and now, as a member of the Ohio General Assembly, I have spent my entire adult life serving my country and my community. I look forward to being a conservative champion for Ohio in Washington D.C.”
