In The Region:

Congresswoman Betty Sutton is going to challenge freshman Representative Jim Renacci, thanks to the new Ohio congressional map Republicans have created.

 

Sutton announced Wednesday that she will run for the 16th Congressional District, whose new boundaries extend from Stark County up to Westlake. Some of that is now part of the 13th District, where Sutton is currently the incumbent.

 

The Democratic Sutton said that she was targeted by Republicans during the redrawing of the district lines.

Sutton says Republicans are attempting "power grabs"

“We’ve seen from Republicans in Columbus an agenda of trying to silence working people.  Whether it was passing Senate Bill 5, and then locking us out of the statehouse or passing a partisan map behind closed doors without public input.  They have attempted one power-grab after another.”

 

Sutton said she is proud of her record in the 13th District, and is looking forward to helping more citizens of Northeast Ohio.

 

Renacci could not be reached for comment. But he said in a statement that regardless of who runs against him in 2012, he will focus on improving the economy of Northeast Ohio.
