The new 4th Congressional District was gerrymandered to U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan's advantage. Challenging him is Jim Slone, a Democrat. As anyone can read in thatsmycongress.org/house, Jim Jordan's votes have favored industries that pollute (with strip mining, mountaintop removal and emission of toxins into air and water). He favored a bill allowing federal agents to seize property without warrant. He co-sponsored a bill to outlaw all abortions, several contraceptives and in-vitro fertilization clinics. He opposed a bill to reduce excessive military spending. Among other conservative votes, he favored a bill to cut funds for children, seniors, pregnant mothers and inspections for food safety.
