Jan. 29th. 2008
U.S. Rep. Ron Lewis ended his re-election campaign on Tuesday in a surprise last-minute move. Lewis withdrew from the race only moments before the campaign filing deadline.  Lewis’s decision to retire has been followed by dozens of other Republican representatives and senators who express a lack of interest in their jobs since the Democrats took control of congress after the 2006 election, and in view of the polls which show the democrats may increase their majorities in both houses in Nov. of 2008.

The most widely known candidatej in the 2nd District race  is Democrat Dave Boswell.  The following candidates filed for the 2nd   Congressional District which will be vacated by Rep. Lewis.
