Ohio House of Representatives

Former Ohio House Representative John Widowfield resigned his seat in 2008, allowing House Republicans to name a replacement through appointment. Nero sought the seat, and was named the replacement. He was sworn into office on June 12, 2008.

With the seat up for election in 2008, Nero had to run for election to a full term to retain the seat. However, with the year favoring Democrats, and with Barack Obama topping the ballot, Nero was defeated by Mike Moran, a Democrat. The final tally was 55.87% to 44.13%.

Nero spent six months in the Ohio House. He has since returned to the private sector.
