After four years representing Ohio’s 18th Congressional district, Democratic Representative Zack Space was defeated by Republican Bob Gibbs.
First term Rep. Zack Space is back home in Ohio’s 18th District making the rounds while Congress is in summer recess. Some critics call him ‘the accidental congressman.’ Space, a Democrat, is the first to admit he would not be in office today had it not been for the downfall of his predecessor, Republican Bob Ney. Even though the next election is more than a year away, Space is already campaigning. And so is the opposition.
Ohio Congressman Bob Ney says he’s made serious mistakes and is sorry for the pain his wrongdoing has caused. Ney’s statement follows news that the 18th district congressman has agreed to plead guilty to federal charges connected to a probe of lobbyist Jack Abramoff. But reaction in parts of the 18th district is muted.
