Coal lobbyist and political neophyte, Mike Carey turned heads today as he secured himself a seat at the House in Ohio, unseating Republican Representative Steve Stivers.
Carey stamped out 11 other GOP candidates for the seat in Ohio’s 15th Congressional District. In the aftermath of a recent loss of Trump-backed Texan legislator, Susan Wright, it seems that Trump’s political collateral may have waned in value. today seems to have seen to a revivification of the golden stamp of Trump’s approval.

Carey had a massive percentage of the votes at 36%, while opponent Bob Peterson, hobbled into second place with only 14% of the votes. It was at this time that the Associated Press called the race.
Carey seems to be made in the mold of America’s 45th President, as Carey has labeled himself as an outsider to the political landscape. Echoing Trump’s “Make America Great Again” platform, Carey touts a policy prescription of “America First”
In a statement put out by Carey, he states, “Tonight, Republicans across Ohio’s 15th Congressional District sent a clear message to the nation that President Donald J. Trump is, without a doubt, the leader of our party,” Carey went on to say that he “… could not be more grateful for his support, and I am proud to deliver this win to advance his America First agenda.”.
His policy agenda runs through a moderately conventional ideological framework familiar to Republicans. These include, as his Ballotpedia calls out “lowering taxes, cutting red tape, demanding fair trade deals, and investing in our military and first responders – worked and led to the greatest economy of our lifetimes. “.
So, Carey will be the Republican nominee for the 15th District in the special election in November and will face Democratic Rep. Allison Russo for the seat at the House.
