House Speaker John Boehner has one less challenger in the May 6 GOP primary for his 8th Ohio Congressional District.
Matthew Ashworth, a tea party activist and business owner from Liberty Township, said on his campaign website that he was getting out of the race, and throwing his support to another challenger, Eric Gurr, also a business owner from Liberty Township.
