Here are some updates from David Skolnick, covering the endorsements of the Mahoning County Democratic Party’s central and executive committees today at St. Luke Parish Hall in Boardman:
• Mark Hanni has withdrawn from running for a seat on the 7th District Court of Appeals. Hanni says he'll file by Monday's write-in deadline as a Democrat against Mahoning Coounty Common Pleas Judge Maureen Sweeney, a Republican.
No one else has filed for the position.
• David Engler has withdrawn from the open seat on the 7th District Court of Appeals and has thrown his support behind Democrat Anthony Donofrio, who he's spent the past few weeks criticizing.
