DNC Adds Ohio To Its “Battleground Build-up 2020”

Democratic Party Joins Fair Fight PAC, Swing Left and National Democratic Redistricting Committee in Targeting Ohio

COLUMBUSThe Democratic National Committee is adding Ohio to its “Battleground Build-up 2020” program, which is a multi-million-dollar investment that will fund new on-the-ground hires and additional offices, to defeat Donald Trump and help boost down-ballot races, including two Ohio Supreme Court races that could flip the court’s current GOP majority.

“Ohio Democrats are fired up to do our part to defeat Donald Trump and bring an end to partisan gerrymandering in 2020,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “We appreciate the DNC’s continued support and the strong partnership we’ve built with DNC Chairman Tom Perez. Ohio is clearly in play for 2020 — that’s why Trump keeps coming here, his campaign is spending big here and his super PAC is targeting here. Trump knows he’s in trouble in Ohio because his failed policies and broken promises have hurt workers, farmers, small businesses and consumers.”

Recent public polling demonstrates how competitive Ohio will be in 2020.

In addition to the DNC, several national organizations recently announced they are focusing on the Buckeye State:

The DNC hosted its October 2019 debate in Westerville, a central Ohio suburb that has trended blue over the past six years, highlighting how suburban voters will play a major role in the 2020 election, both in the Buckeye State and across the country.
