Aah - the life of a political blogger.

John Boccieri is not yet sworn in and the STARK COUNTY POLITICAL REPORT (The Report) is already speculating on his next challenger.

An easy one, huh?

Matt Miller of Ashland County.

By 2010, Boccieri will have created a record of voting with the "liberal" Nancy Pelosi and the "right-wingish" Matt Miller will be "chomping at the bit" to take him on.

And, you know what? Miller is likely to get a clear path to the Republican nomination.

Miller, the man who embarrassed Ralph Regula in 2006 and nearly defeated Schuring in 2008, probably already has the campaign machinery geared up and running.

Miller has to be thinking that this seat belongs to the Republicans. You know, the Regula/Frank T. Bow longevity thing.

If this race materializes, it will get ugly. Left/right matchups are always cut throat. It will make the Boccieri/Schuring contest look like child's play.

Question: Do you expect Ashland County's Matt Miller to be the Republican nominee in 2010?
