Race Summary

In 2006, Mary Jo Kilroy came within some 1,000 votes of defeating Rep. Deborah Pryce (R), who decided to not run for a ninth term this year. With Pryce’s retirement and more than $1 million in the bank, Kilroy finds herself in good position against state Sen. Steve Stivers, though national Republicans boast of Stivers' skills as a candidate.
