In 2005, Ohio will be the focus of political activists who are working to take back Congress from Republican control. This spring, President Bush snatched Congressman Rob Portman out of office by appointing him as a US trade repesentative. Competing for Portman's old seat in the US House of Representatives are Democrat Paul Hackett, who is a veteran of the Iraq War, and Republican Jean Schmidt, who has spent the last few years working to promote the agenda of radical right wing activist groups who are trying to institute Christianity as America's official religion.

For motivated Ohio progressives, the links below lead to information and activist resources to help in the struggle to take back the Congress in 2006 and promote progressive ideals across the United States.
