Take Action Ohio

Senate (Ryan, OH-13 (Sykes), OH-09 (Kaptur), OH-01 (Landsman)

Congressman Tim Ryan took almost 70% of the vote in the May 3 primary. Now Ryan faces flip-flopping author J.D. Vance, who narrowly won his primary. Ryan was elected to the Ohio State Senate in 1999 and the U.S. House in 2002. Ryan has served as a staunch Democrat in the House. He is pro-choice, pro-union, and pro-LGBTQ equality. Vance supports no abortion ban exceptions, even for rape or incest.

In the House, Emilia Sykes, D, will run against Republican Madison Gesiotto Gilbert in the newly drawn OH-13 district. Sykes, an Ohio state representative, received the 2020, EMILY’s List Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star Award, which celebrates extraordinary women serving in state or local office. Gilbert, former Miss Ohio, worked on Trump’s two campaigns and for the America First Policy Institute,

In OH-09, Incumbent Marcy Kaptur will face J.R. Majewski, a Republican who praises QAnon and says the FBI was behind the violence at the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Kaptur is the second-longest serving woman in Congress. OH-09 is more challenging because redistricting made the district more red.

Democrat Greg Landsman has a chance to flip OH-01, which became more competitive for Democrats after redistricting. Landsman is running against Steve Chabot, who signed an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade. Chabot outraised Landsman in the primary, so Landsman’s campaign needs an infusion of donations.

All three districts are rated tossups.
