Rep. Jim Renacci (R-Ohio) is joining the race for Ohio governor in 2018, vowing to end pay for play economic policies and aligning himself closely with President Trump.
Renacci, who has served in Congress since 2011, on Monday launched his campaign website, OhioFirst.com, which is a play off of Trumps slogan America First.
He is the second declared GOP candidate in the race, after Ohio Lt. Gov. Mary Taylor.
Other GOP names circulating as likely candidates are Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine and Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted.
Meanwhile, on the Democratic side, there are three declared candidates including former state Rep. Connie Pillich, Ohio Senate Minority Leader Joe Schiavoni and former Rep. Betty Sutton.
In 2012, after redistricting in Ohio made Suttons district more GOP-leaning, Renacci defeated her by a few points.

Unknown name. Doesn’t have a prayer in this state without name ID
Meanwhile, we’re coming up on the 1 year anniversary of the Roden family mass murders, still no arrests have been made, and there are serious questions about the investigation and some of the investigators.
Please. Please. Please. Nor DeWine.
All he needs is a shout-out and pat on the back from Trump and his opponents are toast.
Well known in the Cleveland area - at least I’ve been hearing his name for the past 5-6 years.
I’m southern Ohio. Never once heard of him
One shout out won’t do it.
14 months until the primary to build ID.
Exactly. Our task here is perfectly clear: not DeWine.
