(OH-15) – Today, Senator Bob Peterson (R-Fayette County) announced that former Republican Congressman Dave Hobson has endorsed his campaign for Congress. Congressman Hobson was first elected to Congress in 1990 and represented Ohio’s 7thDistrict until 2009. His former district contains significant portions of the current 15th Congressional District.
“As a member of Congress, I was focused on eliminating wasteful government spending, ensuring our district's infrastructure was second-to-none, and strengthening our national security,” Hobson said. “Bob Peterson shares those goals and has a strong record of accomplishment for our area. He's always lived by the principled conservative values that make Ohio and our nation strong. I am proud to endorse his candidacy for Congress because he is unquestionably the best person for the job.”
This endorsement is the latest in a series of his endorsements for Congress. Previously, Pickaway County Commissioner Gary Scherer as well as Ross County GOP Leaders Diane Carnes and Penny Lamb announced their support. More endorsements will be announced this week.
