Columbus, OH — Today, the Ohio Democratic Party (ODP) held a virtual meeting of its Executive Committee. Per ODP bylaws, the committee is required to consider endorsements of statewide candidates before the primary election. The Executive Committee voted tonight to endorse State Representative Jeff Crossman for Attorney General, Forest Park Councilmember Chelsea Clark for Secretary of State, Marion Mayor Scott Schertzer for Treasurer and Nelsonville Auditor Taylor Sappington for Auditor.
“Ohio Democrats are proud to endorse such a strong, diverse ticket. These Ohio Democrats will be laser-focused on fighting to help working families get ahead – a stark contrast to their Republican opponents who are caught up in the largest corruption scandal in state history,” said Chair Walters.
According to ODP bylaws, the Executive Committee shall be called for a meeting before the primary election and the committee must carefully consider an endorsement in each race. Before tonight’s endorsement vote, the Party convened a screening committee made up of members of the Executive Committee that met with each candidate.
