Columbus, OH — Today, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Elizabeth Walters issued the following statement congratulating Nan Whaley on her election as Ohio’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee.
“Nan Whaley is the leader Ohio deserves with a proven track record of leading Ohio through its toughest times and helping our state come out stronger on the other side. Tonight, she makes history as the first woman to secure the gubernatorial nomination of a major political party in Ohio, cementing a strong and diverse ticket of candidates ready to show Ohio voters we’re on their side. Mayor Whaley provides a stark contrast to the corruption, incompetence and waste we’ve seen from Mike DeWine and his Republican cronies. Mayor Whaley is the candidate Ohio needs to create jobs, clean up corruption and put Ohio back on the right track,” said Chair Walters.
Mayor Whaley joins a strong, diverse ticket of Ohio Democrats ready to show Ohio voters that our candidates are laser-focused on the issues that matter to working families, in contrast to Republicans who are embroiled in the largest corruption scandal in state history and only looking out for themselves and their special interest friends.
