Republican Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O'Brien will have a Democratic challenger for the first time in 16 years. O'Brien will run for re-election against Democratic Columbus City Council member Zach Klein next November. Klein won re-election last November.  Republicans are criticizing Klein for a lack of experience and for abandoning his City Hall seat. Klein is a former assistant Ohio Attorney General, a former special assistant U.S. attorney and an attorney in private practice. Green Party candidate Bob Fitrakis also filed to run.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
