For the first time since 1984, there's a good chance that citizens in Ohio's 17th congressional district will be represented by someone other than James Traficant, who was convicted of federal corruption charges and expelled from the House this summer. Traficant is seeking election to the newly drawn district as an independent. His campaign is scheduled to begin television ads today and his supporters are working hard at the grassroots level, even as Traficant is locked in a federal prison in Pennsylvania. 90.3's Janet Babin caught up with some of them at a high school football game - she files this report.
