2022 Democratic Candidates

Governor and Lieutenant Governor

Nan Whaley for Governor and Cheryl Stephens for Lieutenant Governor

For the last eight years, Nan had the honor of serving as the mayor of Dayton, Ohio. She faced some of the toughest challenges — a mass shooting, the opioid epidemic, tornadoes, a broken economy, and now, the COVID-19 pandemic. Through it all, Dayton has come out stronger and more resilient thanks to her leadership.

United States Senate

Tim Ryan for United States Senate

A lifelong Ohioan who lives just a few miles from the house where he grew up in Niles, Tim has spent his career fighting for Ohio workers. He’s seen in his own community what happens when our politics and our economy aren’t working for working people.
