Steve Christopher filed yesterday with the State of Ohio to challenge Mike DeWine in the May Republican primary election for Ohio Attorney General.
“I made the decision to run against Mr. DeWine in order to give Ohio voters a conservative choice, after Dave Yost was asked by the Ohio Republican Party to run for Ohio State Auditor instead of Attorney General.”
Through a statewide grassroots effort, Christopher was able to garner nearly three times as many signatures as were needed over the past week in order to meet the quota necessary to file for candidacy.
“I am grateful for the efforts of so many who have stepped up to the plate to help in this endeavor. People were literally hand-delivering petitions to my offices from as far away as Cincinnati and Medina. These folks are the real heroes.”
Christopher is an attorney with offices in Findlay and Kenton. He has been in the practice of law for 26 years, as well as serving as acting judge in Hardin County and as a Blanchard Township trustee. He teaches part-time at Ohio Northern University. He has lived in Hardin County most of his life, and is married with three grown children.
