Statement by state senator Michael J. Skindell:
Democrats in the 13th House District again overwhelmingly supported our progressive campaign in yesterday’s Democratic Primary. We prevailed because of a strong message for our progressive values — funding of senior services, fighting for fairness and equality for women and the LGBTQ community, increasing the minimum wage to $15/hour, clean air and water, defending the rights of workers to bargain collectively and advocating for single payer universal health care.
As a former Ohio Assistant Attorney General, I have not been afraid to stand up to the radical agenda of the party of Trump in the General Assembly.
Our win the in the Democratic Primary was not easy. I thank Democratic voters for their support on Tuesday and I thank all the volunteers and donors who made our win a reality. I also want to thank the following organizations who fight daily for working people and who supported our campaign:
Our work is not over. We face significant challenge in the November 6th General Election. You can help our campaign by making a small donation.
Again, thank you!
