Andrew Hounshell of Middletown is no career politician; he’s a steel worker, an Army veteran and father of three-year-old triplets. A self-described regular guy.


And now he is about to try to climb one of the highest mountains in politics – running for the 8th Congressional District seat held by the Speaker of the House, John Boehner.

House Speaker John Boehner says the sooner the government starts addressing its fiscal problems, the sooner the economy will begin to improve.  Boehner spoke with employees of Vinylmax, a window manufacturer in Hamilton, during a tour of the company's plant Monday.
