Boccieri is in the swing district of swing districts in the swing state of swing states. His vote was a big get for the Democratic leadership, and it will be a key test of how the issue tests in November. He faces businessman Jim Renacci.

Boccieri said politics were not on his mind, though. He noted that the woman President Obama highlighted in his appearance in Ohio this week, Natoma, is from his 16th district.

"This town is wrought with that these days," he said. "But leadership on both sides are worried about who's going to take the House, who's going to keep the House. Who's worried about Natoma keeping her House?"
