Ken Harbaugh Runs for Ohio’s 7th Congressional District After Two Years Living There

Ken Harbaugh

Ken Harbaugh is running for U.S. Congress in Ohio’s 7th District as a Democrat.

And he owns a rental house in Connecticut. And he has lived in that state and apparently in California.

Harbaugh bought a house in Avon on Sept. 9, 2016. The Lorain County Auditor information is here.

In June 2017 he announced his bid to run against incumbent U.S. Representative Bob Gibbs (R-OH-07). Gibbs was sworn into office January 5, 2011, his Congressional biography says.

On May 31, 2005, Harbaugh and his wife, AnneMarie, bought a house at 81 Belmont St. in Hamden, Connecticut. The city’s assessor report on the property is available here.

His wife’s blog details their many moving adventures.

Harbaugh filed two Financial Disclosure Reports with the Clerk of the House of Representatives, in 2017 and 2018, that show that property is a rental home.

Hamden’s assessor website shows four Belmont Street bills in which he has received a $9,000 exemption on his property taxes. Copies of those bills are available here.

The Harbaughs have lived in California as well. This snapshot of AnneMarie’s Facebook page says they moved to El Segundo on July 29, 2014.

According to his Financial Disclosure Reports, Ken Harbaugh was formerly president and COO of Team Rubicon Global, which is based in El Segundo.

The Harbaughs owned a house in Chagrin Falls from Dec. 29, 2009 to May 23, 2014. The Cuyahoga County property report is available here.

One Ohio political observer is asking for more information on the Connecticut rental property.

“It’s curious to have this candidate running in Ohio, having a residence in Connecticut and having lived in California and now having claimed deductions in Connecticut for a house that clearly he doesn’t live in while registering … to run for office in Ohio,” said Tom Zawistowski. He is president of We the People Convention. “There’s an explanation needed by this candidate to justify a $9,000 exemption on his Connecticut taxes.”
