State Sen. Steve Stivers of Upper Arlington today will announce his candidacy for the 15th Congressional District seat, likely setting up a showdown with Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy in what could be the nation’s premier congressional race in 2008.

“I’ve decided to run for Congress because I think we really need change in Washington,” Stivers told The Dispatch yesterday. “There is way too much bickering and not enough working together to get things done.”


Sen. Stivers lives in Victorian Village on 2nd Ave and is very moderate on most issues. He has also gone to Iraq twice. Should make for a very interesting race.
