My source for Adams County news tells me that former U.S. Rep. Bob McEwen (R-
Hillsboro Arlington, Virginia
Anderson Twp.) spent most of the day yesterday at the Old Timers Day Festival in Peebles. This wouldn't make sense if Rep. McEwen were running statewide, but it would make sense if he intends to challenge U.S. Rep. Jean "Tracy Flick" Schmidt (R-Miami Twp.) in next year's primary. A race between "Bouncin' Bob" and "Tracy Flick" would be fun to watch, mainly because one of those two would have to lose. But we need a true conservative to challenge Senator DeWine and clear a path for a Democrat to take the seat.
