Today, the Ohio Senate Democrats filed their Pre-General campaign finance report with $804,451.57 raised - more than any Ohio Senate Democratic Caucus filing since at least 2014.
"Today's filing is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team - our incumbent senators, candidates, and campaign staff. The Ohio Senate Democrats have built a winning program, and the momentum is ours," said Senator Nickie Antonio. "We could be poised to pick up seats on November 3rd, and we won't stop working until every voted is counted. It's time to bring some balance to Ohio's Statehouse."
The Senate Dems also reported an impressive $346,114.94 cash on hand this filing period, despite the ongoing Coronavirus crisis and its feared impact on political giving during a critical election year.
The Ohio Senate Democrats are working to end the Republican culture of corruption by breaking the Senate supermajority and returning some balance to Ohio's Statehouse. Republican supermajorities have led to three FBI-involved Ohio scandals in the past four years. This includes the most recent $61 million scandal, in which ex-Speaker Larry Householder was arrested in connection to "likely the largest bribery, money laundering scheme ever perpetrated against the people of the state of Ohio," noted one US Attorney.
By repeatedly posting such strong fundraising numbers each period, the Ohio Senate Democrats are well positioned to protect their incumbent members and win seats in targeted districts heading into a redistricting year.
