The Associated Press reports:
A Northeast Ohio activist who’s been behind efforts to pass a strict abortion bill is challenging an incumbent Republican for the Ohio Senate.
Republican Janet Folger Porter of Hinckley filed for the March 15 primary on Wednesday. She’s seeking to represent the 22nd Senate District, which includes Medina, Ashland and Richland counties, along with portions of Holmes County.
Sen. Larry Obhof, of Medina, currently holds the seat and is running for re-election.
Porter has fiercely advocated for passage of the so-called heartbeat bill, a measure that would ban most abortions after the first detectable fetal heartbeat.
The bill cleared the House this spring. Porter and her organization, Faith2Action, have targeted senators in ads and demonstrations for not acting on the legislation.
Democrat Christopher King of Sullivan also has filed.
Faith2Action on their YouTube site writes:
The incumbents in the Republican Establishment ignore us. They have not done what we hired them to do and it is time for them to find another line of work. It’s time to take our government back. It’s time for ACTION. Join the movement at JanetFolgerPorter.com or contribute at Conservatives for Janet Folger Porter, PO Box 54 Hinckley, OH 44233
