OH-10: Dayton Democrat launches challenge to longtime GOP rep

Desiree Tims, a local activist from Dayton, Ohio, who formerly served as an aide to Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), on Wednesday will be launching a challenge for Rep. Michael Turner's (R-Ohio) congressional seat.

Tims's campaign said she will announce her candidacy for the state's 10th Congressional District at a morning press conference. The campaign will mark Tims's first run for public office.

In prepared remarks for her campaign launch, Tims attacks Turner for failing to provide "safety and security" for Dayton families with gun control legislation in the wake of a mass shooting that devastated the city earlier this month and left nine people dead.

I stand here as a lifelong Daytonian, grieving for the lives that have been ended or changed by the mass shooting just a few days ago," she states in the remarks. "Our community is still healing from this tragedy, and it is, sadly enough, one that could have been prevented."

2. Georgetown law grad

Georgetown also produced Mazie Hirono, Dick Durbin and Ted Lieu, among others.

Turner won by 34% in 2014, 32% in 2016, but by under 14% in 2018. So, trending the right direction.
