Heydinger exits Ohio House race in Norwalk

Tom Jackson • Mar 23, 2010 at 6:27 PM

Suddenly, Democrats don't have a candidate after all for the 58th House District, which includes Norwalk.

State Rep. Thomas Heydinger, D-Norwalk, announced today that for health reasons, he has decided not to seek a full term in the Nov. 4 general election. Heydinger, a retired judge and Vietnam War veteran, had

been appointed to the post after former Rep. Matt Barrett resigned after lying about a sex scandal.

The latest Democratic candidate -- the third so far this year -- will face Republican Terry Boose, a former

county commissioner.
