Here in Ohio - Swartz withdraws from Congressional race

In this week's Toledo Free Press, it's reported that Libertarian candidate Jeremy Swartz has withdrawn from the ninth congressional race where he would have faced incumbent Democrat Marcy Kaptur and Republican primary winner Richard Iott.

Swartz stated he was pulling out of the election due to a personal emergency but did not provide any additional details.

As the Toledo Free Press also reports, it's not clear at this time if the Libertarian Party of Ohio is going to nominate someone to run, or if it will be Joseph Jaffe who ran against Swartz in the primary.
