Women Running in Ohio

Significance of State

Due to a close split in party registration and its historical electoral importance, Ohio has been considered a key battleground state since the 2004 U.S. Presidential election. The state was vital to President George W. Bush's re-election chances, . . . because no Republican has ever been elected President without winning Ohio.

Alaina Shearer ~ U.S. House, District 12

On her campaign website, her staff wrote, “prior to founding a digital agency in 2009, Alaina earned two Associated Press awards for her work as a radio journalist. Most recently, in 2016, Alaina founded a national women’s association for women in tech and digital professions. Today, she’s running for Congress in the 12th District for her children, her neighbors, her community and for her fellow small business owners.

Desiree Tims ~ U.S. House, District 10

Desiree won the Democratic nomination with 70% of the vote to represent Ohio’s 10th Congressional District. She will face off against Republican, nine-term incumbent Michael Turner in November.

Hillary O'Connor Mueri ~ U.S. House, District 14

Hillary won the Democratic primary with X percent of the vote and will face a tough race against four-time Republican incumbent David Joyce in November. Hillary has been endorsed by: Undersec. Patrick J. Murphy, Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), and Sen. Kenny Yuko, Leader of the Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus.

Jaime Castle ~ U.S. House, District 2

Educator and entrepreneur Jaime Castle faces a steep uphill battle to represent Ohio’s 2nd Congressional District, but that hasn’t stopped her from stepping up to the plate with her eye on knocking Republican incumbent Brad Wenstrup out of the park. While her rival enjoys a staggering amount of financial resources at his disposal, 42% of which come from PACs and 11% from small individual contributions, Jaime has no PAC aid and 31% of her campaign is financed by small business contributions.

Joyce Beatty ~ U.S. House, District 3

Joyce has served as Ohio’s 3rd Congressional District representative since 2013. A seasoned and capable leader with substantial support behind her, Joyce will face off against Republican Mark Richardson in the general election in November.

Kate Schroder ~ U.S. House, District 1

On April 28, 2020, Schroder won 68% of the Democrat vote in the primary. She has also been endorsed by Emily’s List and #WinTheEra. Next, she will square off with Republican incumbent Steve Chabot, who has held the seat for nearly a quarter of a century and has already been ousted once, in 2008, and faced a spirited challenge in 2018.

Marcia Fudge ~ U.S. House, District 11

Marcia has represented Ohio’s 11th Congressional District since 2009. She handily won the Democratic primary and will face Republican challenger Laverne Gore in November.

Marcy Kaptur ~ U.S. House, District 9

After handily winning the Democratic nomination, Marcy will face Republican challenger Rob Weber, a self-described “loyal supporter of President Trump” in the November general election.

Shannon Freshour ~ U.S. House, District 4

Shannon handily won the Democratic primary and now faces a tough election in a heavily gerrymandered district that favors Republican incumbent Jim Jordan, who has held the seat since 2007. Although her opponent benefits from substantial financial backing, Shannon’s own numbers reflect both her own rising star and how Jordan’s votes to repeal the ACA, not to impeach, and regular, impassioned defenses of Trump just might backfire.

Shawna Roberts ~ U.S. House, District 6

Shawna is running to represent Ohio’s 6th Congressional District, one of the poorest in Ohio. She first ran for the seat in 2018 and lost to incumbent Bill Johnson. She’s trying again and faces a steep uphill battle due to a discrepancy in financial resources compared to Johnson, who is running for his fifth term and is 61% bankrolled by PACs such as Koch Industries and CVS Health.

Vanessa Enoch ~ U.S. House, District 8

Dr. Vanessa Enoch is running to represent Ohio’s 8th Congressional District. She won the Democratic nomination on the April 28th Primary and will face incumbent Warren Davison in November for a second round after attempting to unseat him first in 2018.
