House District 55: GOP Hopes Manning Ballot ID Helps Against Mackin In Open Lorain County Seat

The departure of Rep. Matt Lundy in December has put his Lorain County district near the top of House Republicans' list of targeted races, with Sen. Gayle Manning's son Nathan running against Democrat Brendan Mackin for the open seat.

The two candidates have similar backgrounds: both are fairly young attorneys, both have worked as assistant prosecutors and city law directors, and both are relatively centrist in their political views.
