Race for Boehner's seat could mirror House leadership fight

1 Share
<p>The race for outgoing Speaker John Boehner's southwestern Ohio congressional seat is already taking shape, with signs it could become as much of a clash between the GOP's establishment and tea party wings as the competition to replace him<b> </b>in House leadership.</p><p>Richard Jones, the Republican sheriff of Butler County, Ohio, told Campaign Pro that he was contemplating a run and would make a decision in the next two weeks. </p><p>Jones drew attention to himself last month when he assigned a detective to investigate companies in the county who employed illegal immigrants. The Cincinnati Enquirer <a href="http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2015/08/25/sheriff-jones-shame--employers-who-hire-illegals/32318829/" target="_blank">reported</a> that he had once sent a letter to the Mexican government asking for $900,000 for &quot;dealing with your criminals.&quot;</p><p>He described himself in an interview as &quot;very conservative, very outspoken,&quot; and said he would emphasize sealing the border and tightening immigration in his campaign if he ran.</p><p>&quot;We can't keep allowing these people to come into the country illegally,&quot; he said.</p><p>Jamie Schwartz, a GOP political consultant based in Cincinnati, said Jones was one of half-dozen potential Republican candidates. They include Roger Reynolds, the Butler County auditor; state Sens. Bill Coley and Chris Widener; and former state Sen. Gary Cates. State Senate President Keith Faber, who doesn't live in the district but represents a slice of the district and is term-limited, could also run.</p><p>And former Rep. Steve Austria, whose House seat was eliminated during reapportionment after 2010, is also consdering a run. &quot;I'm going to let the dust settle, and then I'm going to sit down with my family, friends and elected officials and determine if it's the right option,&quot; Austria <a href="http://www.cleveland.com/open/index.ssf/2015/09/special_election_will_select_j.html#incart_big-photo" target="_blank">told the Cleveland Plain Dealer</a>.</p><p>&quot;I would say the two strongest candidates right now would be Sheriff Jones and Roger Reynolds if they decided to run,&quot; Schwartz said.</p><p>Reynolds said in a statement that he was &quot;shocked to hear of Speaker Boehner's resignation&quot; but declined to comment on whether or not he would run when reached by phone.</p><p>Meanwhile, J.D. Winteregg, the former adjunct French professor who challenged Boehner from the right in the Republican primary last year, told Campaign Pro he'll &quot;absolutely&quot; run in the special election.</p><p>Winteregg won 23 percent of the vote when he ran last year with the support of the Tea Party Leadership Fund, and he said he hoped his previous challenge to Boehner would give him an advantage in the special election. He had about $18,751 left in his campaign account at the end of the second quarter.</p><p>&quot;I'm the only one who's done that, and I think that will set me apart,&quot; he said.</p><p>He said he'll focus his campaign on &quot;overturning the Obama agenda,&quot; tackling the federal debt and &quot;the amnesty issue.&quot;</p><p>But Schwartz said Winteregg would likely fare worse now that he's competing for an open seat. &quot;I would say he's likely not to get too much attention,&quot; Schwartz said.</p><br><p>It's unclear when Ohio will hold the special election to fill Boehner's seat once he steps down on Oct. 30. Joshua Eck, a spokesman for the Ohio secretary of state's office, said they were working with the governor's office to set a date in the next few months. &quot;We're talking about the very end of the year, if not even later,&quot; he said.</p><p>The district, Ohio's 8th, is solidly Republican territory. Mitt Romney won the district in 2012 with 62 percent of the vote. Roughly half the district's population lives in Butler County, in Cincinnati's northern suburbs.</p><p>Jones, the county sheriff, said that's an advantage for him. &quot;I could not draw a better district suited for me if I decide to run,&quot; Jones said.</p><p>Matt Borges, the chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, said that while he was confident Republicans would hold the seat, he didn't expect to elect someone else of Boehner's stature. &quot;You don't replace a speaker of the House with another speaker of the House,&quot; he said.</p><p>Neither Jones nor Winteregg said they'd decided whom to support for speaker now that Boehner's out, but Jones did express a preference in the presidential race.</p><p>&quot;At this time, I like Trump,&quot; he said.</p><br>
