A former Adams County judge and State Representative announced last week that he is considering running for US Congress. Current Congressman Brad Wenstrup announced earlier this month that he will retire from Congress when his term expires late next year.
“For over a decade, southern Ohio has been represented in Congress by Brad Wenstrup, a patriot and statesman,” Bubp said. “I appreciate his service to our country and the people of our district.
“Over the past several days, community leaders from every corner of Ohio’s Second District have reached out to me regarding running for this seat. For the sake of our country, I am strongly considering vying for the honor of representing our area in Congress.
“With a mere four months before election day, I will be making my final decision soon and am prepared to build an effective campaign operation capable of winning this seat.
“Throughout my life, I have always answered the call to serve. America is in trouble, and I feel that I can make a true difference fighting for us in Washington.”
Danny Bubp is a retired colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. In addition, he retired as judge in Brown County and previously served as judge in Adams County and state representative for Clermont, Brown and Adams counties.
The entrance of Bubp would make him an automatic front-runner in the race. Bubp has represented portions of the area in the Ohio General Assembly and has been elected Judge in two different counties in the Second District of Ohio.
