District 8[edit]

The 8th District was held by Republican John Boehner. Boehner announced that he will resign his seat effective October 30, 2015. A special election to fill the remainder of the term will be held at a date to be determined.[12]

Prior to the announcement of Boehner's resignation, he was facing primary challenges from Tea Party activists and 2014 opponents businessman Matthew Ashworth and teacher J.D. Winteregg. Since Boehner's announcement, nearly 15 candidates have pulled petitions for the Republican nomination. Corey Foister won the Democratic nomination, but later withdrew from the election after the June 7th special election.[13][14][15] Steven Fought was nominated by the Democratic Party to take Foister's place on the general election ballot.[16]
