Mike DeWine

Current Position: Governor
Affiliation: Republican

Mike DeWine loves Ohio and cares passionately about our state’s future. He knows that every parent wants their kids to have an opportunity for a solid education, a healthy life that is free of drugs, and a good paying job later in life. Republican leadership has righted the ship in Ohio, but Mike knows that we have a chance to propel our state even farther ahead.

Mike knows that for our state to succeed in the future, we have to take efforts to create and retain jobs in Ohio to the next level. By curbing excessive taxation and burdensome regulations, his focus will be on creating a more inviting business environment and bringing and keeping jobs in Ohio.

Sherrod Brown

Current Position: US Senator
Affiliation: Democrat

No one fights harder for Ohio’s working families or takes his job more seriously than Sherrod. It’s a reputation he earned through his career in public service. When Sherrod won a seat in the General Assembly, he became the youngest person elected to Ohio’s House of Representatives. He went on to serve as Ohio’s Secretary of State and represented Ohio’s 13th District in the U.S. House.

In the Senate, Sherrod gives voice to Ohioans who have been left behind by the special interests that dominate Washington, and is fighting for an economy that restores the value of hard work in America.

Robert Portman

Current Position: US Senator
Affiliation: Republican

Rob has built a reputation in the Senate as a conservative who is focused on building consensus to promote pro-growth policies that will lead to private sector job creation. Rob is a leading advocate for tax reform, regulatory reform, deficit reduction, and worker retraining reform to help create an environment for Ohio employers to grow and create good-paying jobs.

Despite the gridlock in Congress, Rob has had nearly 50 of his own bills signed into law, including legislation to combat drug abuse, fight human trafficking, improve the federal permitting process, reduce waste and fraud in government spending, and reform federal worker retraining programs so they work better for Ohio workers.
