An Ohio candidate running for Congress suspended her campaign following the arrests of her and her husband on domestic violence charges.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to 911 calls about an altercation at the home of Stephanie Studebaker and her husband, Sam, on Sunday night.

Both were charged with domestic violence and released on $25,000 bond.

A message on the Democrat Party candidate’s Web site Monday evening says:

“Due to personal issues, the Studebaker for Congress campaign is suspending all campaign activities for the time being.”

The 45-year-old veterinarian is running against Republican Rep. Mike Turner in her first political race.

Sam Studebaker, 39, told deputies “his wife had been beating him.” An incident report says he had marks on his right arm and upper back.

His wife reported he had hit her. She also had marks on her right arm.

Both Sam and Stephanie filed domestic violence complaints against one another.
