The winners will receive online fundraising assistance, voter lists for their districts and help in phone banking to I.D., persuade and turn out voters. Whether Kucinich will need extra assistance this cycle is debatable. With the filing deadline for the May 4 primary only a week away, he’s drawn no Democratic challengers. The field of five Republican challengers includes only one — Thomas R. Olschlager — who has so much as a website, although one other, Peter J. Corrigan (not the Democratic common-pleas judge of the same name), has already qualified for the ballot. The Republican field also potentially includes Michael Grusenmeyer, Benjamin J. Franklin and James F. Brihan; we’ll see next week which of them turn in the valid signatures they need. — Anastasia Pantsios
