A Bowling Green man is challenging Bob Latta for his 5th District Congressional seat. The Lima News reports 68-year-old Bob Kreienkamp plans to challenge Latta in the Republican primary next May. Kreienkamp tells the newspaper he would be better at communicating with constituents than Latta currently is. He added that he felt Latta was “hiding” from area residents by not holding town hall meetings.

Kreienkamp worked in TV in Lima and Bowling Green for 33 years.

Van Wert County Commissioner Todd Wolfrum also plans to run for the 5th District seat as a Republican in 2018.
