There will be one contested race coming up in Hancock County. County Commissioner Tim Bechtol is looking for reelection while Paul Craun looks to unseat him. Both men are Republicans.

Robert Sprague’s former seat in the 83rd House District has plenty of contenders. Jon Cross and Cheryl Buckland are Republican candidates for the seat. Democrat Ashley Philipps is also running.

A Findlay man is looking to unseat Bob Latta. Barrett Brooks Jr. is looking to run for U.S. Representative but there was confusion surrounding his petition. He checked names at the Hancock County Board of Elections but was supposed to file in Lucas County. He is currently waiting to see if the mistake can be remedied.
