Ohio 5th Special Election Results

Okay, let’s get this over with quickly. From The Blade:

State Rep. Bob Latta (R., Bowling Green) yesterday won by a large margin the 5th District congressional seat that he lost by 27 votes almost 20 years ago. With all precincts in the 16 counties that make up the sprawling district reporting, Mr. Latta beat Robin Weirauch of Napoleon 56.8 per cent to 42.9 percent.

I wonder when the voters of the 5th district will realize that they have just elected a Congressman who will be at the bottom of the seniority list in the minority party in the House, and likely to become even more of a minority after next year’s election?

In other words, don’t expect much from him; he won’t be able to deliver much more than platitudes.
