“It is an honor of a lifetime to represent the people of Ohio at such a critical time for our state and nation, and I look forward to doing my best to serve our state as we chart a path forward. We face many challenges in the months ahead, and it will take common sense, leadership, and innovative ideas to find solutions. I will tackle every issue with a focus on jobs. We need to get our fiscal house in order, become less dependent on foreign energy, and make it easier for small businesses to succeed.”
