Campaign themes


Lehart's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Let's stop trying to build the economy by cutting taxes on the richest Ohioans, and focus on the middle class. We need to cut taxes for those who need it most, and grow the economy from middle out, not top down."


  • Excerpt: "Affordable education is the single greatest program that our government can offer to us."


  • Excerpt: "Our government cannot continue treating women with less respect than a man. Women deserve equal pay, affordable medical services, and the same right to achieve the American dream as a man."

Worker's Rights

  • Excerpt: "If we want our families to get ahead, we need to ensure that union protections are in place for fair living wages, safe working conditions, and proper benefits. Its no coincident that the states with the lowest paid workers, and highest injury rates happen to be so-called 'Right-to-Work' states."
