Seven days, seven powerful reasons these Ohioans are voting for Sherrod

1. Meet Crystal. The Children’s Health Insurance Program has made a big difference for her family. When Congress refused to reauthorize CHIP, Sherrod fought hard for families like Crystal’s.

“To me, Sherrod is a real public servant. He goes above and beyond politics and really champions his constituents—especially when they have a serious emergency. There are hundreds of thousands of CHIP families in Ohio. I know we can count on Sherrod to be there for us and fight for us, and I’m glad to do the same for him.”

2. Meet Tayo. He is a proud Sherrod supporter whose work focuses on diversity and inclusion in higher education.

“When I came to Ohio, a whole new world of possibilities opened for me. I am an African American transgender-identified partner, parent, and professional—I didn’t know that such a life was possible until I moved here.”

3. Meet Monica. Her work focuses on ensuring the Latino/a/x community has a voice in local politics.

“Sherrod is our voice in Washington. He’s there to represent the people of Ohio. Whether it’s healthcare, Social Security, or wages, it’s all on the line in this election.”

4. Meet Rhiannon. She served as a healthcare professional in the U.S. Airforce, and is now the Executive Director and a Community Organizer for the Women’s March Ohio.

“I’m committed to continuing this work, and working alongside leaders like Sherrod to fight for a better country where we’re all truly treated equally.”

5. Meet Kim. Her son was born with a progressive neurodegenerative disorder. Kim stands with Sherrod because of his advocacy for the disability community.

“Too often, people with disabilities are overlooked, written off, and defined by what they cannot do. Sherrod listens to the disability community and takes our needs seriously.”

6. Meet Tamaya. She’s the first openly gay woman of color elected to public office in Cincinnati, and went viral for holding a red folding chair during her swearing-in, a reference to the Shirley Chisholm quote, “If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”

“Sometimes politics can seem transactional, but Sherrod has been a genuine advocate on so many issues for so long. More than anything, we need to make sure we have elected officials in D.C. who are looking out for us, and support us. Sherrod will be a fighter.”

7. Meet Al. A small business owner, nonprofit president, community leader, and veteran, Al is excited to stand with Sherrod this fall.

“I get up every day wanting to make my community better. I think Sherrod wakes up every day just like I do—wanting to make our country better.”
