Connie Pillich

On Friday night, at the Columbus Athenaeum, the Ohio Democratic Democratic Party will hold its annual "Legacy Dinner," one of the party's largest fundraising events of the year.

"Let's celebrate our 2014 talent,'' says the announcement on the party's website, ohiodems.org.

In other words, it is a "cattle call" for potential statewide candidates.

Incumbent Ohio House Democrat Connie Pillich faced a bit of an uphill battle after her seat was redistricted but she was re-elected last night over Republican Mike Wilson.

Pillich says veteran's issues and education are key issues for her. She says education was by far the biggest concern she heard from constituents too.
