Two file for 6th Congressional District
(2008-01-08)
Rep. Charlie Wilson, (D) 6th District, Richard Stobbs, Republican Candidate
(WOUB) - Southeast Ohio Congressman Charlie Wilson will have some competition in his bid for re-election to represent Ohio's 6th Congressional District.

Republican Richard Stobbs of Dillonvale has filed his petitions to seek the office post.

Stobbs ran unsuccessfully for the Republican nomination in 2006 losing to Chuck Blasdel.

Wilson, a Democrat, beat Blasdel in the general election of that year.

Wison has also filed his petitions to appear on the March 4th primary ballot.

In 2006, he had to run as a write-in candidate in the primary because he failed to gather enough valid signatures to be placed on that ballot.

The two candidates will run unopposed in the 2008 primary.
