Politicians -- one out, one in
(WOUB) - Two big political announcements for our area yesterday!

They came within minutes of each other.

First, Republican Joy Padgett said she's not running for re-election for state senator in the 20th district.

If Padgett had run and won, that would have been the end of it for her.

State law says you can only serve two consecutive four year terms.

On the heels of Padgett's announcement, fellow Republican lawmaker Jimmy Stewart has one of his own.

And it is -- I want her job.

A key issue in his campaign, he says, will be Ohio's alternative energy industry.

Stewart is now the 92nd District state representative.
