Dark-Money Group Funds Nasty, Misleading Ads Against Judge Jennifer Brunner
In a sign that corporate special interests aren’t ready to relinquish their control of Ohio’s redistricting process, a Republican dark-money group funded by Big Pharma, the oil and gas industry and tobacco companies — an avowed “national organization exclusively dedicated to electing Republicans to state legislatures” — is airing a nasty, misleading ad attacking Judge Jennifer Brunner, despite her opponent and another justice seeking re-election taking a “clean campaign pledge.”
Ohio Republicans are so desperate to keep control of the Ohio Supreme Court that they’ve brought in Karl Rove to help raise money for one of the incumbent justices.
Desiree Tims in Statistical Tie with Opponent Mike Turner
Desiree Tims is in a “statistical tie” with Congressman Mike Turner in Ohio’s 10th Congressional District according to new polling. Tims’ surging momentum comes only two weeks after her campaign set a fundraising record by raising the most money in a quarter of any candidate to run in her district.
“This campaign is powered by grit and grassroots energy,” said Tims. “I’m running for Congress to bring Republicans and Democrats together to get things done for the Miami Valley. I’ll fight for lower health care costs. I’ll fight to bring good jobs with higher paychecks to the Miami Valley. And I’ll fight to protect our community from gun violence. It’s time we had someone in Congress who will put our community first — and deliver for all of us.”

Betsy Rader Launches New Ad
Betsy Rader launched a new ad after her opponent broadcast misleading, malicious ads against her. Her opponent can’t run on the issues, so instead he’s spreading lies about her and her campaign. Her ad emphasizes a need for the truth, something she’ll be fighting for.
