Timm Ormsby’s election opponent focused on legislation, not Ormsby’s recent driving charge

Voters and donors aren’t backing away from incumbent 3rd District Representative Timm Ormsby, a Democrat, despite him being charged with driving under the influence in February. Since then Ormsby has apologized and said the incident was a wake-up call that caused him to quit drinking entirely. In the August primaries Ormsby collected a commanding 64 percent of the vote against his opponent, retired Marine Lt. Col. Dave Lucas, a Republican and a political newcomer. Ormsby also holds a substantial lead in fundraising, collecting nearly triple the cash Lucas has.
