In 2018, Ohio House Democrats flipped six of these districts blue (Reps. Robinson, Lightbody, Liston, Russo, Miranda, and Weinstein), and two seats are competitive districts Trump performed well in (Reps. Blair and Clites). We must hold on to these blue seats if we want to break the supermajority in November.
In 2020, we have a real opportunity to flip seats blue across Ohio. These candidates are running in the most competitive districts not currently held by a Democrat.
Republican gerrymandering has made it difficult for Democrats to be competitive in many districts in our state. However, we are confident with this great slate of candidates we can break the supermajority in the Ohio House this November to draw fair maps that represent all Ohioans. A few of these candidates are running in must-hold districts currently held by term-limited Democrats.
These candidates have stepped up to run for office in a gerrymandered district. Their voices are critical to holding Republicans accountable and elevating the Ohio Promise message to voters across the state.
