TIPP CITY– State Senator Bill Beagle (R-Tipp City) last week filed his petitions with the Butler County Board of Elections to appear on the March 15 Republican Primary ballot to represent Ohio’s 8th Congressional District.
Beagle, who currently serves in the Ohio Senate, first announced his candidacy in late September to succeed former Congressman John Boehner.
“Today was a proud moment in my campaign for Ohio’s 8th Congressional District,” Beagle said in a release. “After months of spending time with individuals and families in Butler, Preble, Darke, Miami, Mercer and Clark Counties, I officially entered the race to serve as their next Congressman. I am humbled by the outpouring of support I’ve received from across the district and am eager to get to Washington and fight for the real, conservative reforms we need to save our country and protect our future.”
