Former Rep. Charlie Wilson (D-Ohio) is considering a rematch against Rep. Bill Johnson (R-Ohio), who ended Wilson's two-term run in the House in 2010, beating him by 5 points.

Wilson loaned $150,000 to his campaign committee during the third quarter of 2011 and also filed the necessary paperwork for him to run in 2012.

Wilson's loss to Johnson in 2010 was a tough defeat for Democrats. Johnson tied Wilson to then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and argued his votes for healthcare reform and the stimulus made him too liberal for the state, even though Wilson had a fiscally moderate record and supported gun rights. National groups chipped in to buy ads on both sides of the race, and Johnson beat Wilson 50-45.

Johnson's district was redrawn in 2011 and became bigger, but also slightly more Republican, making it more difficult territory for Wilson than it was when he held the seat.

Cleveland's The Plain Dealer first reported that Wilson was considering a run, adding that former Reps. John Boccieri (D-Ohio) and Zack Space (D-Ohio) were also contemplating joining the primary.
