Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) will have a challenger in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate next May.
ANNOUNCEMENT: I’m running to represent Ohio in the U.S. Senate to give power back to our communities. It's our turn! #Morganize pic.twitter.com/W6UuZ4fU1E— Morgan Harper (@mh4oh) August 18, 2021
Columbus consumer protection attorney and community organizer Morgan Harper has filed to run against Ryan. And though the race is likely to be expensive, she says she won’t take corporate dollars.
“We will raise the resources necessary to execute our strategy which is built on a new game plan for us as Democrats, organizing people, door by door, block by block, getting across this state and letting people know they will have a champion in Washington who will stand up to corporate interests," Harper says.
Harper says she’ll put ordinary Ohioans first and that she’s a political outsider in many ways. Harper ran against Democratic Congresswoman Joyce Beatty last fall and lost by a margin of 68-32%.
