ENDORSED CANDIDATE

Shawna Roberts

State: Ohio

Elected Office: U.S. Representative

Reason for Endorsement:

Shawna Roberts (OH-06) became involved with her local Indivisible group, Marchers Ohio Valley Empowered (MOVE), after the 2016 election and participated in die-ins at Sen. Rob Portman’s office during the Trumpcare fight. Shawna and her husband have lived in rural Ohio for nearly two decades and she wants to tackle the ways government in DC fails rural communities: she will combat rural hospital closures, and fight for investment in rural broadband access and ending the opioid epidemic. If she wins her primary on May 8, she’ll take on Rep. Bill Johnson in November.

Year: 2018
