State Rep. Christina Hagan became the first Republican to jump into the race for Ohio’s 16th District on Monday. Four-term GOP Rep. James B. Renacci is running for governor in 2018.

It’s a safe Republican seat that President Donald Trump won by 17 points last fall and could attract a crowded GOP primary field

Ohio Rep. James B. Renacci is running for governor in 2018 and will leave behind a Republican seat in the 16th District. 

The four-term congressman made the announcement Monday morning in an introductory video playing up his business credentials and touting himself as an outsider in the mold of President Donald Trump, whom he backed during last year’s election.
