The Ohio Scoop

The Ohio Scoop is your weekly campaign fix, filled with the most up-to-date information about Ohio Democrats and everything happening on the campaign trail here in Ohio. We’re here so you can get your political scoop, all in one place.

If you’re new to the list, welcome. You were added because you are one of Ohio Democrats’ best supporters. For those of you who are returning, welcome back.

We had a busy week on the campaign trail, so let’s jump right in.

Democrats are DELIVERING

Y’all better be pumped. President Joe Biden is taking the fight to MAGA Republicans, our razor-thin majorities in Congress are racking up HUGE victories for working families, and our candidates are defying expectations across the map. 

Let’s take a minute to review our recent legislative success: 

   ✅ Student Loan Relief 

  • $10,000 in debt cancellation per borrower 
  • $20,000 in debt cancellation for pell grant recipients
  • 90% of debt cancellation benefits will go to borrowers earning less than $75,000

   ✅ Inflation Reduction Act

  • lowers the cost of prescription drugs, healthcare and energy 
  • largest investment to fight climate change in American history
  • makes the largest corporations pay their fair share of taxes 

✅ CHIPS Act 

  • revitalizes domestic manufacturing
  • creates 3,000+ jobs here in Ohio 
  • strengthens American supply chains 

   ✅ 10 Million Jobs Created 

  • fastest job growth in American history 
  • lowest unemployment rate in 50 years 

   ✅ Gas prices continue to fall 

  • 75 days of continuous falling prices 

   ✅ Gun Safety Legislation

  • enhanced background checks
  • disarms domestic abusers 

   ✅ PACT Act 

  • largest expansion of benefits and services for veterans suffering from toxic exposure and their families in 30 years 

   ✅ Ketanji Brown Jackson confirmed to the US Supreme Court 

   ✅ al-Zawahiri, leader of al Qaeda killed 
 

And let’s take a minute to review our recent political success: 

   ✅ Women voter registration soars in Ohio

  • Since Dobbs, women are out registering men by 11 points
  • New women registrants are modeled to by +15 points Democratic 

   ✅ Democrats overperform in 4 special elections since the overturning of Roe v Wade 

   ✅ Kansas votes overwhelmingly to uphold abortion rights  

   ✅ Inside Elections and Sabato’s Crystal Ball shift #OHSen toward Tim Ryan 

   ✅ Dark Brandon TAKES THE GLOVES OFF

   ✅ J.D. Vance’s campaign goes broke, while Tim Ryan defies the critics 

   ✅ Nan Whaley continues to close the polling gap 

Republicans want you to believe the red wave is inevitable. I’m here to tell you it’s not – but only if we connect with voters in every corner in Ohio. 

Volunteer with us today. If you can’t volunteer, please consider a donation to fund our field organizers.

Together, we can win this November and place Ohio back on the perennial battleground map.

You’re Invited!

The 2022 Ohio Democratic Party Family Reunion is just one month away. Tickets are going fast, so don’t miss your chance to attend.

Join us for an afternoon of entertainment featuring speakers Sherrod Brown, Tim Ryan, Nan Whaley, and more.

Seats are filling up quickly so be sure to purchase your tickets today!

🚨New Tim Ryan Ad Alert🚨

Tim Ryan launched a new ad this week highlighting how J.D. Vance used his sham non-profit to promote a “Big Pharma funded mouthpiece” who called OxyContin a “godsend.”

And, Ohio Democrats took control of J.D. Vance’s defunct nonprofit website, OurOhioRenewal.com. Give that site a visit to read about the failed promises of Vance’s nonprofit and the damage it caused to Ohio families struggling with addiction.

J.D. Vance is a fraud. He has proven time and time again that he has no principles, and he cannot be trusted to be our next Senator. 

Please help us fight back against Mitch McConnell’s recent $28 million dollar Ohio ad campaign and keep Tim’s ads on the air.

Mike DeWine is Shaking in His [Extremist] Boots

Last week after Nan released two new TV ads, “Adding” and “Math,” the Republican Governors Assocation’s super PAC launched its own TV ad campaign to attack Nan. RGA knows that Mike DeWine is in trouble and they are scared of Nan Whaley’s momentum. 

Mike DeWine has $2 million in dark money pouring into Ohio to attack Nan Whaley, but it has not stopped her. A recent poll shows the race for Ohio Governor within the margin of error. 

Joe Biden Levels the Playing Field

On Wednesday, President Biden announced the Federal Government will cancel between $10,000 to $20,000 of student loan debt. This is a great step toward leveling the playing field and helping Ohio families get ahead.

The plan also includes a new income-driven repayment plan and will revamp the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. These steps will lower monthly loan payments and give more Ohioans credit toward paying off their student loans.

For too long, Ohioans have been shackled by student loan debt that prevents them from pursuing their dreams. This is yet another example of the Biden administration continuously helping Ohioans save money and stimulate the economy.

 Endorsement Alert

Julia Louis Dreyfus has long been a supporter of President Biden and the Democrats. But this week, she used her platform to elevate Ohio’s slate of Supreme Court candidates  by endorsing Justice Jennifer Brunner, Judge Marilyn Zayas and Judge Terri Jamison. 

Ohio is one of only two states in the country with the opportunity to flip control of the state supreme court this year. The stakes are too important, we need your help.

Flavor of the Week

Friday was national dog day. Here at ODP, we have a special friend. 

Allow me to introduce you to Beatrice Walters. The four legged side kick to our fearless leader, Liz Walters.  

If you have not met Beatrice Walters yet, I would like to introduce you to Chairwoman Walter’s best friend.

Beatrice enjoys long walks with grandma, peanut butter, cuddles with her mom after a long day of pawlitics and Jeni’s Gooey Butter Cake ice cream.

Until Next Week

Summer is almost over and time is ticking for us to win this November.

We have a lot of work to do to get more field organizers on the ground in every corner of the state. We have offices to open, phones banks to hold, canvasses to launch, and of course – thousands of unregistered Democrats to register by Election Day. To do this, we need your help and we need it now. Please consider contributing as much as you can to help build the infrastructure needed to win.

If you’re unsure about how much you can still contribute to help us win in November and beyond, simply reply to this email. My team will respond with what you can still do to help us grow the team.

As always, thank you for standing with us. We are so grateful for your incredible support.
