We saw last night that despite the GOP’s shameful attempts to suppress the vote, Wisconsin Democrats prevailed in their fight to elect Judge Jill Karofsky to the Wisconsin Supreme Court.
These statewide judicial races are critical, and Democrats proved last night that we CAN win — even when Republicans play politics with voters’ lives during a pandemic.
Looking ahead to November, we have the same opportunity here in Ohio. Two seats on the Ohio Supreme Court are up this year, and if we win them, our candidates will join the two justices we elected in 2018 — achieving a Democratic majority on the court for the first time in decades.
Both of our candidates have been ahead or tied against the Republican incumbents in every poll. But the other side is extremely well-funded — and we need your help.
In 2018, the statewide vote totals in Ohio’s legislative elections were about 50-50, but Republicans have rigged the lines to give them overwhelming majorities in the Ohio House and Senate.
Electing two Democrats to our state’s highest court is our best shot at a level playing field in Ohio. When new districts are drawn next year following the census, we need a Democratic majority on the court that will ensure that the new map is fair and represents our state accurately.
You see, this isn’t just about winning this year, Jamie — this is about making Ohio competitive for the next decade.
Thanks for being in this fight,
Ohio Democratic Party
