Ohio Congressman Found Dead

A Republican leadership aide says Ohio Congressman Paul Gillmor was found dead in his apartment today.

The aide says staff members found his body, after he didn't show up for work. There's no word yet on how the 68-year-old died.

Gillmor, who represented the Bowling Green area, had spent nearly 20 years in Congress. He first won his House seat back in 1988, after eking out a 27-vote victory in the primary.

He was a little-known House member, but a reliable conservative on social issues.

He led legislative efforts to cleanup brownfields and enact financial service reforms.
