Ohio: Dailey Wants Second Shot at Space

Ohio Republican Fred Dailey is challenging two-term Democratic Rep. Zack Space in what would be a rematch of their 2008 matchup in the 18th District in eastern and south-central Ohio.

But Dailey, who won 40 percent of the vote in that race, is running in a GOP primary next May that already includes state Sen. Bob Gibbs, whose campaign has drawn praise from national Republican officials, and Jeanette Moll, a former county magistrate who lost to Dailey in the 2008 Republican primary.

Dailey said in a statement Oct. 1 that he “learned a lot in 2008” and “am much better prepared for the challenges that lie ahead.” He also criticized Space’s voting record, including his backing of a cap-and-trade bill that aims to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

CQ currently rates the general election race as Democratic favored.
