TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - Conservative groups against expanding Medicaid in Ohio are setting their sights on the only Republican legislator who has spoken out in favor of the idea.
Tea party leaders in the state's northwest corner are looking for a primary opponent to challenge Toledo-area state Rep. Barbara Sears next year.
Sears has been out front in her support of GOP Gov. John Kasich's proposal to expand Medicaid to cover more low-income people.
Many Republican lawmakers and conservatives are against expansion, a key part of Democratic President Barack Obama's health care law.
Sears says she's against much of the health care law, too. But she thinks expanding health care coverage for the working poor is the right thing to do and will allow Ohio to better spend taxpayer money.
