The Green Party has a candidate in the race as well.  Will she be added?

Also, more what-ifs could include Josh Mandel, Ken Blackwell, and Urban Meyer (as an Ohio State fan, I'd love to play as him and win :P) for the Republicans as well as Sherrod Brown and Ted Strickland (greatly weakened) for the Democrats.

I will add the green party yes, and @ThePotatoWalrus I would ask for your help seeing as you are a fellow Ohioan.

Ohio is one of the U.S. States I'm less familiar with. I'm not sure what the pressing issues are, and all of the current living politicians from there I'm aware of (other than former Speaker Boehner, who it seems you'd have to have a gun at his head to get him to re-enter politics nowadays, judging by the last interview with him) you've already mentioned.

I would try to find some 2016 election articles that are Ohio specific to see the reasons why the were so supportive of Trump, despite their popular governor's opposition to Trump.

Alto of former blue collar democrats did actually vote Trump, I'll be honest I theorize that if it was Sherrod Brown's seat open in 2016 he would've won. I believe like in the West Virginia a group of people would split party vote.

As I'd said above, given by his last interview I watched. I don't think Boehner would willingly enter politics again. He seems burnt out of being in public service, and has said he's enjoying his retirement like he hasn't enjoyed himself since he was in his '20's.

That's why I have him as an off candidate, I doubt Strickland would run either. Most of them are what if scenarios.

I'm glad you have Dennis Kucinich on there. If he ran, I'd be rooting for him. 

On the very playthrough I actually played as Kucinich and beat Jon Husted 

Kucinich/Pillich 51.3%

Husted/DeWine 46.6%

Newton/Rio's 2.1%

I look to release the Beta by Friday.

Sadly, I think Kucinich would lose unless the opponent ends up being proven as corrupt. Ohio seems more Kucinich now than it was 10 years ago.
