super state ohio 2020 blue wave 2020


Ohio has voted for the winner of every Presidential election since 1964. Getting Ohio’s 18 electoral votes would be a massive boost for Democrats in 2020. The race in Ohio will be fierce, and Democrats will need to fight hard for every vote. That’s why we need your help!

Partisan gerrymandering has helped the Ohio GOP get majorities in the Ohio Legislature.

Flipping five seats in the state Senate and two seats in the state House will be tough, but worth the fight.

Our primary objectives in Ohio are to: 1) compete for the state’s 18 Electoral College votes and 2) curb Republican control of the state government by breaking the GOP’s legislative supermajority in the Ohio State House.

In the state House, we are currently targeting seven districts—six GOP-held seats and one Democratic hold. Democrats need to net just two flipped seats to break the GOP’s supermajority in the chamber. Our pathway to victory runs through Ohio’s urban centers: Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Akron, and Dayton.

In the state Senate, we are currently targeting three districts—two GOP-held seats and one Democratic hold. These geographies overlap with our Ohio State House targets. To establish a viable pathway to victory, it’s critical that Democrats improve on past performance of statewide candidates in these regions.
