UPDATE 10/22/2014 4:55 PM
The seat for 94th District state representative seems to be just as contested as the others in Ohio.
This election brings many issues to the table, as many are not happy with our current government.
The incumbent, Democrat Debbie Phillips, says she is focusing strongly on funding public education.
She says she stands behind issues such the new Common Core standards for Ohio and fighting the opiate epidemic.
Her opponent, Yolan Dennis, is a registered nurse who grew up on a farm in Warren Township.
She says she decided to run because of issues she feels strongly about are not being taken care of
"Instead of complaining about it I decided to take a proactive role and become involved. Some of the issues that I'm really concerned about are health care, Common Core education issues, farm and agriculture issues," says Dennis.
"We've seen way too many problems with serious drug addictions in our community, and that's something that I think we've been to work on in the House in a bi-partisan way," says Phillips.
Both candidates say they have been very busy this election season going to community events and making sure the voters get to know them and where they stand.
Ohio's candidates for the November election are set.
That not only includes Washington County, but the statehouse in Columbus.
Republican Yolan Dennis won the right to face Democrat Debbie Phillips for the Ohio House of Representatives 94th district.
She says her commitment to conservative values was what won over voters in Tuesday's primary.
"I'm very excited and very humbled about all the support, all the care, and all the grass roots work people have done for me," said Dennis. "It's been an invigorating time for me, and I'm just excited to go to the next step."
Dennis praised her primary opponent, Daniel Lantz, whom she defeated by 900 votes.
The 94th district includes the western half of Washington County, including Belpre and part of the City of Marietta.
