Bio

Background

Turner was born January 11, 1960 in Dayton and received a bachelor of arts degree from Ohio Northern University in 1982, a law degree from Case Western Reserve University in 1985, and a master's degree in business administration from the University of Dayton in 1992.

He was a lawyer in private practice before he was elected mayor of Dayton, a position he served from 1994 to 2002.

Congressional career

After losing in a reelection bid to Democrat Rhine McLin, Turner ran for Congress. The third district seat was open because of the resignation of U.S. Rep. Tony P. Hall (D-Ohio). Turner was elected in 2002--defeating Hall's last-minute substitute, Richard A. Carne--and began serving in 2003 in the 108th Congress.

2006 elections

Turner's 2006 opponent for reelection, Stephanie Studebaker, was arrested on August 14, 2006 following a domestic violence dispute with her husband. Studebaker suspended her campaign indefinately after the incident. [1] Aside from Studebaker, no major candidates announced their intentions to contest Turner’s seat in the November 2006 election. (See U.S. congressional elections in 2006) [2] Turner retained his seat.
