TV or not TV, Schneider, Young, etc?

In the Democrat-majority Ohio House of Representatives in Columbus, who’s helping the Nov. 2 contenders based on pre-general election warchest filings with the Ohio secretary of state?
That is, since campaign finance reports on Thursday (Oct. 21), have you seen any Northeast Ohio TV attack ads or mailers involving contestants for seats in the Democrat-majority Ohio House? You know, such as:
n State Rep. Mark Schneider, D-Mentor, and Republican Ron Young
n State Rep. Lorraine Fende, D-Willowick, and Republican David Fiebig
n State Rep. Kenny Yuko, D-Richmond Heights, and Republican Tony Hocevar
n State Sen. Tim Grendell, R-Chester Township, versus Democrat Mary Briggs, Constitutionalist Bob Cannon and independent Mark Saric for an Ohio House seat
The S.O.S. filings page says House Speaker Armand Budish, D-Beachwood, so far has netted $854,000 to help his fellow Democrat candidates and House Minority Leader Bill Batchelder, R-Medina, has $421,000 to help his fellow Republicans.
Might each party’s House Legislative Committee also have millions in hand to write more checks? Who is to be or not to be after the election is over?
