While we wait for the final vote tally from the November 7th election, we can ponder what a win for Mary Jo Kilroy or Deborah Pryce would mean for Ohio's 15th congressional district.
If Kilroy wins, Kilroy would be part of the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives. Being in the majority will have great benefits for the district. Although Kilroy might not be in a leadership position, her ability to get things done and great organizational skills will help make her a star in the House.
However, if Pryce is returned to the Congress, she will be a member of the minority Republican Party. She has resigned her leadership positions and her influence in power will be zero.
We should keep our fingers crossed that Kilroy will win once all the votes are counted.
