OOPAC Surveys Legislative Candidates

2020 Candidate Questionnaire

Election 2020(October 2, 2020) The Ohio Osteopathic Political Action Committee (OOPAC), OOA’s political arm, supports state legislators committed to protecting patient care by ensuring physicians serve as the leader in a team approach to medicine.

To assist OOA members with their choices in this year’s election, OOPAC issued a candidate questionnaire with six issues of particular interest to DOs. The survey was emailed to all candidates for the Ohio House of Representative and Ohio Senate. The listings below include all candidates for the 16 Senate races and 99 House races. Click on the candidate name to view responses. If there is no link, the candidate hasn't submitted the completed questionnaire. The listings will be updated as questionnaires are received.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 3, but early voting starts October 6. To check polling hours and locations, go to the Secretary of State website
