Last week the 2018 primary cycle officially kicked off with candidate filings. Our team at the Ohio Chamber contacted county boards of elections and the Ohio Secretary of State to learn who is running. We created a printable PDF of the candidates that have filed for statewide offices, U.S. Congress, State Court of Appeals, and the Ohio General Assembly.
This year’s political environment is unique compared to recent cycles that were dominated by Republicans. Democrat voters are highly motivated this cycle, which is evident in the most recent campaign finance reports.
In the coming weeks I will analyze each race category in a separate blog post. In the meantime, check out @probizpolitics on Twitter for all the 2018 primary news.
