Dems Bring It Financially - The Monthly Campaign Finance Report for Ohio Statewide Candidates 

By Connor Brown

 

The Statewide candidates campaign reports are in and it looks like the Republicans need to get their asses in gear! 

 

Republican gubernatorial candidate team DeWine/Husted out-raised their Democratic opponents Corday/Sutton.  DeWine/Husted is leading with an over $4 million advantage. 

 

All of the down ticket races are competitive and continue to raise significant funds with the exception of the Republican State Treasurer candidate Robert Sprague who is lagging behind his Democratic opponent Rob Richardson.  As previously reported by 3rd Rail, Richardson has had great success raising out of state funds from labor unions.
