Rich Iott, former congressional candidate from Monclova Township is considering a run for State Rep for the 47th district currently served by Barbara Sears. ┬áSears was the only Statehouse Republican to support Governor Kasich’s inclusion of Medicaid expansion in the biennial budget. Constituents in her district who oppose Obamacare are not happy with her stance on Medicaid expansion, a key component of the health care law.

The Northwest Ohio Conservative Coalition has conducted a poll to learn how an Iott candidacy would fare against Sears in the primary. ┬áThe results show strong support for any candidate who runs against Sears and this support is directly related to Sears’ position on Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion.
