An Ohio GOP Congressional Seat for more than 60 years that could go Democratic Of the nation's 435 congressional districts, all but about 60 are considered safe for the incumbent party. One of the truly competitive races though is right here in Northeast Ohio. It encompasses Wayne, Stark and part of Medina counties. Democrat John Boccieri and Republican Kirk Schuring are vying to replace retiring congressman Ralph Regula. Some are calling this a "democratic year," which raises the question: Will the 16th Congressional District remain Republican as it has since 1946? Both parties are focusing lots of attention this one. On this Candidates Forum, you have a chance to talk to both candidates. Join us Tuesday morning at 9.

Senator John Boccieri(D), Ohio Senate, 33rd District 9 - 9:30am
