Wager of Moreland Hills will face two opponents in the election.
U.S. Rep. Dave Joyce of Russell Township who won a Republican Party primary to secure his party’s nomination to run again.
Solon Libertarian David Macko will also appear on the ballot as he was unopposed in his party’s primary.
The congressional district consists of all of Lake, Geauga, and Ashtabula counties, plus portions of Cuyahoga, Portage, Summit and Trumbull counies.
Wager said in a news release to announce the office's opening that it will take a strong grassroots effort to defeat Joyce.
“I’m proud that our campaign has the support of so many enthusiastic volunteers who are ready to fight for working families, for women, for seniors and for students in Ohio’s 14th District,” Wager said.
Wager said his campaign would focus on the need to create jobs at livable wages, including raising the minimum wage.
