Ohio Democratic Party Launches Paid Digital Ads for State Supreme Court

Judges John P. O’Donnell, Cynthia Rice Featured In Intro Videos

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Democratic Party is launching paid digital advertising this week in support of Ohio Supreme Court candidates Judge John P. O’Donnell and Judge Cynthia Rice with introductory videos highlighting their working-class backgrounds and extensive judicial experience.

“The Ohio Supreme Court should be fair and impartial in upholding the constitutional rights of all Ohioans, not just the wealthy and well-connected,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chair David Pepper. “Judges O’Donnell and Rice grew up in working-class families and learned from a young age the value of hard work, and they will take that experience and work ethic to the state Supreme Court.”



The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Association recently awarded “excellent” ratings to the two Democratic candidates. Rice and O’Donnell have received “highly recommended” and “recommended” ratings, respectively, from the Ohio State Bar Association and received endorsements from the Ohio Association of Public School Employees (OAPSE), United Auto Workers (UAW), Ohio Democratic County Chairs Association and the Ohio Democratic Party.
