Boehner's challengers confident as voting nears

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The primary race for Ohio's 8th district presents two challengers for John Boehner. Both challengers say they are confident going into the voting on Tuesday. 

One of those vying for the seat is JD Winteregg, who is best known for a TV ad that called Boehner's time in Congress  "electile dysfunction."

"I'm putting my money where my mouth is, and this is something I believe in, this I is something a lot of people in Ohio believe in, and the polling shows him below 50 percent, and it shows me within striking distance," said Winteregg. 

The other challenger is Butler County native Eric Gurr. 

"I just kinda' came to the realization that a lot of these guys, you know who have been in Washington for 10,20, 30 years, are doing things that are historically a bad idea," said Gurr. 

Both hope to give Boehner the strongest challenges he's had for his seat in a while.
