From: "Congressional Races - Ohio District 16", in "All Politics" section of CNN.com website (http://cgi.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/1996/candidates/election.guide/text/OH16.shtml; viewed 1 December 2005):
Thomas Burkhart (D)
District 16 (Northeast--Canton)

FAMILY: Wife, Janice; three children

Urged to run by local party officials, Burkhart appeals to the district's blue-collar constituents with his emphasis on the economy's impact on family values--what kind of family life can you have when both parents have to work?--and his belief that NAFTA exploits third-world workers while putting Americans out of work.
