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.

Ormsby also holds a substantial lead in fundraising, collecting nearly triple the cash Lucas has.
