As cool as it would be to have Dean Martin standing for Ohio in D.C., the alcoholic tendencies push him further down on my list...

But the competition between Edison, Wright Bros, Annie Oakley, Jesse Owens, will be heated. I think any of those would be fine figures representing Ohio.

If each state gets 2 statues, who is the other Ohio personage represented by the statue that's not being replaced?
I checked the article twice, but didn't find the name.

It's been a few years since they voted to switch out Allen. My guess is they're waiting for another famous Ohioan who was an astronaut and U.S. Senator to die.
